SMAD! Math Fact Fluency Program Launch & FREEBIE!



Hello all!

I've been hard at work creating my newest file:  SMAD!  
SMAD is a math fact fluency program for grades K-5.
The goal is for students to have their basic math facts MEMORIZED and not rely on their fingers or tricks to count out their facts.  Having the basics memorized will help students later on with more complex math concepts. I think all of us can remember the time in our education that we were required to learn those basic math facts.

This program also allows for differentiation with your students.  Those students who still struggle with addition and subtraction can get more practice with those skills while others move on to  more advanced math.

Here is a basic flow chart to give you an idea of the, well, flow!

I've put together a starter pack for FREE so that you can see what the program is about!

SMAD Math Fact Fluency Program - SMADster Awards!
Each grade has 4 levels (Kindergarten has 6) of timed tests for students to master by the end of the year. Students must score 100% to move on to the next level.  If a student passes an entire grade level of SMAD, they can move on to the next grade level.  You can keep track with a teacher recording sheet and students have there own as well!

  3. I was a classroom teacher before becoming a parent and am now a homeschooling parent/teacher. I love these SMAD ideas and want to use them with my children. I have a 1st, 3rd and two 5th graders. If I buy the 4th/5th packet can i use it with the younger children or do i really need to buy all four levels? thanks for your help! Deb

  4. Disappointed in my purchase. The teachers guide in NOT included in the packet. For that price it should have been! Very misleading.
