Teaching Addition and Subtraction Fact Fluency–But with Understanding Rather Than Gimmicks!

Audience: Pre-K to Grade 2

Fluency is more than memorization of isolated basic facts. Students need to see connections between facts. They need visual models to help form a “mind picture” that connects to a thinking strategy. This session will utilize easy-to-make visual aids and games that help students master the basic addition and subtraction facts with understanding!
