Through automaticity students free up their working memory and can devote it to problem solving and learning new concepts and skills (Geary, 1994).~ Quite simply, a lack of fluency in basic math fact recall significantly hinders a child’s subsequent progress with problem-solving, algebra and higher-order math concepts.~

Math facts are important because they form the building blocks for higher-level math concepts.~ When a child masters his/her math facts, these concepts will be significantly easier and the student will be better equipped to solve them faster.~ If the child spends a lot of time doing the basic facts, he/she is more likely to be confused with the processes and get lost in their calculations.

In later elementary, students have longer and more complicated computations to complete to check their understanding of various concepts.~ At this stage, if a student does not have his/her math facts committed to memory, he/she will spend a disproportionate amount of time figuring out the smaller calculations and risk not completing the assessment.~ This not only affects their performance in math class, but will also in other subjects, such as science and geography.

Math can be compared to languages in some ways.~ Just like you have to learn to combine letters into words and words into sentences – and we have strategies like phonics and sight words to help kids to learn to read - math facts are the foundation blocks for learning the next level of maths.~ There is rote learning involved in both language and math mastery. Math anxiety starts when children fall behind and can’t keep up.~ To avoid these anxieties, students’ early elementary years should focus on learning the foundation math skills needed for later years – math facts are among those important math skills.

- Play math toss.

(ask a question and then toss them a ball, balloon or rolled up socks, they get a point if they answer before they catch, sneaky way to get help sorting socks)

- Make trading cards.
- Skip count.
- Play Math War.

(each play one card for greater than or less than, to practice adding or multiplying by 3 lay a 3 card in the middle and you each play 1 card each time the highest sum is the winner)

- Have the kids make concentration cards. (5 card and a 2+3 card are a match) or (7 card and a 42 / 6 = card are a match)
- Get a math fact poster.
- Play math games.
- Give them cheat sheets.
- Give them multiplication charts or color by number pictures to color.
- Play Board Games (Snakes & Ladders or Sorry help with counting, let them be the banker in Monopoly)
- Play Card Games (Crib is a good for adding)
- Use real world math, like how many quarters in a dollar or what time is it?
- Have them estimate what the groceries will cost as you add them to the cart at the store. (rounding and adding)
- Cook together and let them measure. (measuring)
- Count Your Change. (skip counting)
- Show kids math tricks.
- Teach them how to do Kakuru.

Have fun with numbers, and the recall will come.
