Math Facts, how long do you continue with drill?


Recommended Posts

In 3rd, we did daily flashcards either + or - or x or div. facts through 12.


This past year for 4th, I went down to 3x/week the first semester. By 4th grade, second semester, I found that between Horizons & Singapore, the boys were getting a _lot_ of practice just in the course of working the math problems so we stopped doing separate math fact drills.


For 5th, I think I'll do the flashcards maybe once a month just to make sure they're keeping up their speed & accuracy.


Getting those math facts down in 3rd grade was absolutely invaluable as the boys moved into Horizons 4 & especially Singapore 4!
