Learning Math facts can be boring for some kids. The repetition can get on their nerves or just seem dull to them. So, why not spruce up their math pages with some Spring fun? I mentioned before, how much I enjoyed seeing how fast I could complete the math grids. It challenged me to learn my math facts as well as encouraged some healthy competition among the students.
No one ever got upset that they didn’t beat so-and-so, but instead learned where their mistakes were and did better the next time and cheered on those who did complete theirs with no mistakes!! It was exciting and exhilarating – at least it was for me!
This set of Spring Facts Master Math Sheets is just a way to add some fun to memorizing math facts. Use them as simple practice sheets or as your own Facts Master competition where students compete with the time on the clock. Either way…they’re sure to have fun and learn math at the same time!
This set includes 4 math grids – addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Haven’t used these before? It’s simple. Call out numbers 0-9 randomly for the top row and again for the side. They will fill the same pattern in on all 4 sheets. Set the timer for 10 minutes (to start) and let them go.
This is an easy activity to do with multiple ages too! Younger students simply do the addition and subtraction grids, while the older students do all 4 grids – with 10 minutes on the clock. Once the timer beeps, you call out the answers and let them grade it. If they made no mistakes, they can try the next day (or whenever you decide) to complete them in 8 minutes. It’s a fun way to encourage math facts learning and see where they are in the process!

If you’re looking for some great readers to use while celebrating Spring, check out these great titles. Many are probably available at your local library, or you could get a Kindle version for most of them on Amazon. I love using my Kindle Reader app to read with my kids. I have so many titles at the tip of my fingers in just minutes!
