More Fun = More Practice = More Fluency
Math facts assessment and practice can be tedious, so we make it more fun with joke videos. (Carefully screened by us.) After a daily assessment/practice session, students who are logged in can play our first highly focused video game, Mars Defense (create a free trial now), because more practice = greater fluency, and more motivation = more practice (and less complaining - smile). Being able to concentrate and beat a game while answering math facts without thinking about them is also a great way to practice for following along with a teacher’s higher level math instruction without having to think about the fact answers. More games to follow.
Favorite Joke: (# 72) There were three monsters, called Manners, Mind-Your-Own-Business, and Trouble. They had the day off from the circus, so they went on a holiday. All of the sudden, Trouble disappeared! Being good friends of his, Manners and Mind-Your-Own-Business decided to report Trouble missing at the police station. When they got there, Manners was pretty scared, so he stayed outside. Mind-Your-Own-Business went inside to tell the police what was going on. The desk sergeant asked him his name, and he said, “Mind-Your-Own-Business.” The desk sergeant said crossly, “Where’s your manners?” “Outside.” On hearing such rudeness, the desk sergeant said, “Are you looking for trouble?” Mind-Your-Own-Business said, “Yes, Please!”
