Math fact fluency is one of those skills students need practice on a regular so they continue to be proficient. I was super excited about the crew reviewing the Math Essentials Speed Wheel Drills!
Can I just say my son loves speed wheel drills. This year we had to make a change in his math curriculum and one of the things he loved was the speed wheels. When the Math Essentials Speed Wheel Drills arrived and he flipped through the books he was super excited. I dont know what it is about math facts being in a wheel makes him love fluency work but he loves them.
We were sent the Addition, Multiplication and Division Math Essentials Speed Wheel Drills! Each books comes with 1,440 speed wheel drills. The book also gives parent 21 tips math tips, instructions on how to use the books. Parents can time students or they can be not be times. I am personally noticed that my son has anxiety when things are timed so I dont time him. Each page has 12 speed wheels we did 1 row a day for 4 days a week. We used the Multiplication Math Essentials Speed Wheel Drills but as we move into our home school year I plan to assign a different book for a day of the week because I want him practice all 3 books.
The Math Essentials Speed Wheel Drills can be done in any direction the student wants to start in. The layout is simple the fact family number is in the middle of wheel and the student goes around the wheel preforming the correct operation. My son said he likes the Math Essentials Speed Wheel Drills because they aren’t boring. He said he doesn’t like the fluency sheets that are rows after rows of facts. The speed wheels aren’t in order so they kids will practice random fact families each wheel.
So now that we have found Math Essentials Speed Wheel Drills Addition, Multiplication and Division my son’s favorite way to practice his fact fluency, we are happily spreading the word about these books to friends and family.
