Want to get your students excited about learning their addition facts? Try this fun karate/martial arts incentive program with your class! I’ve been using this program with my students and have found it to be a very successful and motivating way for my students to learn/memorize their math facts. It only takes about 5-10 minutes a day to incorporate in your math block and your students will be begging to take timed tests each day to pass to the next level and earn their black belt in addition!
The program works with brain research and introduces only a few new facts each day. It engages both written and oral practice at school and at home. As students pass levels, they earn new colored “belts” on their way towards earning a black belt.
This resource includes:
Directions/Tips for each page
Color Photos and Examples
26 Different Timed Tests with Answer Keys
Parent Letter Explaining Program
Addition Fact Rings
Flash Cards along with directions for use to maximize fact mastery
Teacher and Student Tracking Sheets
Belt Beads for Each Level
Wall Hanging for Tracking Class Progress
4 Games for Additional Practice
Super excited about this pack! Even though it is geared for 1-3 grades, my team and I have tweaked it and are using your ideas, theme, etc. for our Kindergarten classes. This has really sparked their interest in learning their facts!!! The upper grades have a "Math Master" wall, in which they become 1 star, 2 star, etc. Our Kinders think it's way cooler to brag to their older siblings about their colored Mastery Math Belts.
