    My kiddos sit in groups. Each student makes a set of flashcards as I introduce the various facts. I hole-punch the cards, and they wear them on a string around their neck. During transitions, in the hallway, during any kind of down-time, the kiddos practice their facts. Each separate time I see them practicing, I reward their group with a point. The winning group gets a small prize from me at the end of the week.

    This has been so successful for me that I actually have to get after the class sometimes for practicing their facts when they shouldn't be, like while I'm teaching reading, or giving instructions!

    I have them do practice sheets in class too, and after we learn the facts more thoroughly we will begin daily timings, although I ALWAYS stress accuracy, not speed.
