True be told, Jack Hartmann's songs make me so happy.  Here is a fun Jack Hartmann song we use to begin our dancing and singing celebration.  His catchy lyrics always has the class up and moving around...So great for movement breaks too.

Ways to Practice Addition Facts for Instant Recall and Mastery for 1st and 2nd Grades



Ways to practice addition facts for instant recall and mastery for 1st Grade math and 2nd Grade math
Your first and second graders are learning their math facts, and it all starts with addition! Practicing addition facts can be fun for your students with these different activities! 

Check out these ways to practice addition facts for instant recall and mastery for 1st and 2nd grades!

To get my students in the "mood" for learning, I begin my lessons playing a little Jack Hartmann.  His songs have catchy lyrics and great rhythm.  We love listening and chanting both of these videos.  Your students will be addicted too :) 

Addition Color by Number

Whenever I can work in art with math, my students get excited! Using color by number helps students see the results of knowing their addition math facts while creating a beautiful picture. Color by number addition comes with 12 addition color by number pages and 4 bookmark pages along with a cover to organize into a booklet.  Coloring sheets let students add numbers 1-10 as well as some double digits (through 10+10).  Your students will color cool clip art kids and have the factor power of each number in their corner!

My students can not get enough of Addition Coloring Pages.  I made this freebie just for you.  I know your students will be engaged while practicing their facts too.

Addition Flashcards

Using flashcards to memorize and practice addition facts is nothing new, but you can also use addition flashcards in your classroom for fun games! 

Have your first and second graders use the cards for a game of Go Fish (use the sum for the number to "Go Fish" or match), matching games, or math stations. 

Addition flashcards are also perfect for review. Upload the PDFs to Google Classroom to let your distance learners practice and review! The addition flashcards focus on sums of 10 to sums of 20 and include 173 mini card sets.

Addend Find Game

My students love playing the addend find game included in the Addition Bundle to review their addition facts.  Addend Find works with two players. 

Each student chooses a different color crayon. Next, they roll two dice. Then, the student uses the sum of the dice to complete one of the number sentences with an addend and colors the square their color. The first one to four in a row wins!

Here is an example of my Addend Find Game.  Grab this freebie to see if your students will enjoy practicing their addition facts while playing a game.

Addition Fact Maze

Another activity in the Addition Bundle is the Maze Fun game! Students simply follow the maze through the correct problems. If they reach an incorrect problem, they'll put an X over the problem and turn around to try a different path.

Addition Bump

If you want to get your students really excited about reviewing addition facts, try addition bump!  This is an easy no prep game.  All you'll need is the game board, two dice, and 20 tokens. 

 Here's how it works!  Begin with two players or teams per game board. 

First, player one rolls the dice and adds the number on the dice with the number on the top right corner of the game board. Next, player one places a token on the matching sum of that fact. Player two then continues with their turn. In order to BUMP opponents off their space, the other player must roll the same sum. To secure a space, players place two tokens on a given space by rolling the same sum two times during play.  The game ends when all tokens are used.  The game includes game boards for +1 to +12 facts. 

Want to see what all the BUZZ is about?  I made this Addition Bump Freebie just for you. Click HERE to grab this FREEBIE for your students.

My class is getting ready to celebrate the great Martin Luther King Jr.  Our shelves are full of great literature. Discussions are beginning. How else can we bring Martin Luther into the classroom? With Martin Luther King Math, Activities and Songs, of course!

Art Hub

Do you know Art Hub on YOUTUBE?  We love this father and son artist duo (and sometime young daughter)  Every holiday, we spend a few minutes on a Friday afternoon doing one of their direct drawings.  Not only are these direct drawings adorable and collaborative but they help reinforce listening, following directions and inspires creativity for other art projects.   Check them out below.



Rise Up Song

Jack Hartmann is my "go to" when teaching Kindergarten and 1st Grade but some of his songs are for everyone and this is just one of them.  It has a nice rhythm, incorporates some actual black and white photos of Dr. King and celebrates peace. What student doesn't need a little movement break during the afternoon? (Hint:most of mine)


Martin Luther King Jr. Multiplication Color by Number Math Activities

Multiplication Color by Codes are alway a huge hit with my students! My kiddos love coloring and practicing their facts for fact power.  They usual get so fixated on the colors that they don't realize that they are reviewing their multiplication facts for mastery and fluency.  I use these sheets for morning work during check-in, early finishers , math centers of for homework.  

And if that doesn't sound like the greatest news ever... I recently gave this resource a "Spa Day" updating fonts and borders as well as adding student multiplication bookmarks to help support students that may need a little extra scaffold and differentiation.
