Each morning, when the bell goes, students spent the first 5 minutes of each day practising the basic facts. If students get the same score as the day before or improve their score, they receive a house value card and we celebrate their progress as a class.
Here's what some students had to say about beginning the day this way.
"I like that I get better every day."
"It's so much fun and it doesn't feel like a test."
"I wish we could do it for longer because its helping me get faster."
"When we first did this, I couldn't get one line done and now I can do 3."
