A simple, effective program to help your child master the addition facts once and for all, in just six weeks—without spending hours and hours drilling flash cards! Addition Facts That Stick will show you exactly how to teach the addition facts so that your child will remember them for good. Instead of making piles of flash cards and drilling them over and over, you’ll use hands-on games and activities (and a few worksheets) to help your child become completely fluent with all of the sums from 1 + 1 = 2 up to 9 + 9 = 18.
Here’s how the program works: Your child will focus on one section of the addition table each week, and you’ll spend about fifteen minutes per day working on the facts together. On the first day of the week, you will show your child a strategy for solving the focus facts and play a fun game that practices those facts. For the rest of the week, you will play the new game together each day. Your child will also complete a short practice page each day to cement the focus facts and review all the other facts learned so far.
With smart strategies, fun games, and a few quick worksheets, your child will master all the addition facts—in just six weeks!
