lil' maids in a row Posted September 20, 2012 Share Posted September 20, 2012 I am working with my 1st grader on memorizing her math facts and have a few questions for those of you who have btdt. 1. I had originally planned to memorize the facts to 12, but now that I'm in the midst of it memorizing to 12 just seems to be slowing us down. Especially since once you memorize your facts through 9 it is pretty easy to figure out the others. So should I keep on trucking through 12 or call it a day with the facts through 9? 2. Everyday dd does her flashcards twice with me and twice with dad (just the fact set we are working on that week), completes a 12 problem "fact race" worksheet, and spends 15-20 min. playing computer games that work on the math facts. This is in addition to her regular curriculum (which also spends time reinforcing the facts). She seems happy with this, but I am curious ... is this too little, too much. Is there a fun and brilliant way to memorize these other than flash cards, timed tests and computer games???? Thanks for your help! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
