Improve Math Fact Fluency with Super Heroes!

These superheroes have superpowers!  and the superpowers are the mental math strategies!  Your students will love gaining their superpowers as they learn to apply the strategies!
I created this set of games because we all know. . .’worksheets do not grow dendrites’!  These engaging games based the the mental math strategies do create dendrites as connections are made in the brain between what students already know and using that to figure out new learning.

Each game comes with a small mental math strategy poster, and the game rules on the flip side.  Having the strategy mini anchor chart provides an additional way to cement those superpowers (strategies) in the student’s minds.

    Great way of providing repetition! Thanks for stopping by!

    That's a tough one for me. My first year it was a big part of our math program. I piloted a different math program the following year which had no strategies included. Last year we had a completely new series that also didn't go into any mental math strategies. This summer I am going back to the first program to go through the strategies I liked best, turn them into focus lessons to teach in small groups, and finally find/make games to practice these!

    I do lots of repetition using games and whatever else I can find to make it fun.
