Fact Practice...

We are drilling some major addition and multiplication facts around here this summer. I found this idea to make it a little more fun on one of my new favorite blogs, Confessions of a Homeschooler. I had them start at the top of the stairs. Then I held up a flashcard (addition for A and multiplication for J) and if they got it right they could move down a step. First one to the bottom wins. As you can see here Jackson was ahead, but Ashton actually ended up winning:

This was a little more fun than regular drill. I was pleased to discover that they knew their facts better than I thought they did, but we have lots more fun drills coming!
