This free preview is for educators (teachers, homeschoolers, ...) who want to learn about a simple yet remarkably engaging and effective approach to building addition and subtraction facts fluency and number sense. It includes the complete FactsWise introduction as well as the chapters that will allow you to implement the Goal 1 mini-lessons for both addition and subtraction.
This complete FactsWise Add/Subtract Online Course for Educators includes the FactsWise Add/Subtract Resource Book, screencasts and classroom videos. You'll see how simple it is to engage your students for 5 to 15 minutes every day with hands-on activities as well as games and interactive practice routines. Mini-lesson plans are included for the entire school year.
The Add/Subtract Resource Book includes a complete introduction to the FactsWise teaching, learning and assessment principles. It also includes mini-lesson plans and blackline masters for the entire school year as well as formative and one-on-one assessment resources. This book is included in the Online Course for Educators, but can also be purchased separately here.
These classroom mini-lessons are designed for you to share with your students and most often include a video or screencast. After these online introductions, you as the classroom teacher will continue the lesson with manipulatives, games, strategy share-outs and closures.
This resource is included as a free download in the complete Online Course (see above). It contains over 300 pages of blackline masters for extra game cards and representations that teachers have requested over the years.
Many teachers have requested this, so I'm using the MIT Scratch programming platform to build out free FactsWise games. You and your students can try them out -- check out Online Games above. I'd love to get your feedback!
