Every Factivation!® lesson includes a wide variety of printable options, each designed for a specific purpose. The workpages, activities, and assessments provide targeted practice with the facts from the current lesson, deepening students’ understanding through repeated exposure and varied experiences with the same Addition facts. Many also spiral back to review facts from previous lessons, while others connect the current focus facts to their Subtraction counterparts.

Adderpillar Fact-Building Activity
Lay the foundation for each lesson! Use the Adderpillar™ mat (and any available manipulatives) to give students hands-on experience building Addition facts.
PROCEDURE: Read Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar if available. Explain to students that they have a very hungry adderpillar™ who likes to eat beans (adapt to fit your manipulatives).
Model: Write one of the current lesson’s focus facts on the board: 2 + 3 = ___ for example, and say, “When our adderpillar™ first woke up, he ate 2 beans.” Point to the “2” in your equation and place 2 beans in the first section of the adderpillar’s body.
Practice: Have students practice fact-building independently or with a partner using their Adderpillar™ mat and manipulatives. Place the Adderpillar™ mat and manipulatives in a Math center for continued practice.

Printable Game: Linking Sums Game
Perfect for Math Stations or as a purposeful indoor recess activity! This printable game can also be sent home to play with family members. Store easily in a gallon ziploc with playing pieces (about 10 each of 2 colors) and 2 paperclips. The object is to answer Addition facts and get four sums in a row. Strategize (by using algebraic thinking) to block opponents plays. This game provides endless opportunities to review the focus facts and commutative counterparts learned in each Factivation!® lesson. Get full game instructions here.
# Linking Sums Games Available: 1
Once students are demonstrating accurate recall of sums (with consistency), administer the Accuracy Assessment. Have students fold paper into fourths. You only need to use one section. Find “Attempt #1” and allow a reasonable amount of time for students to complete. REMEMBER: this assessment precedes the Fluency Building segment, so speed is not being measured. If students are ready, move on to Segment 3: Fluency Building. If not, SAVE the assessment, repeat the above, and administer “Attempt #2” when ready.
# Accuracy Assessments Available: 36 (1 per lesson, 4 per page)
Eliminate intimidation and build Mathematical confidence with the Factivation!® Progressive Assessments. Like the Accuracy Assessment above, the Progressive Assessments do not test until it’s been addressed! In other words, they assess only facts for which the student has received instruction. Students answer all visible facts: those from the current and previous lessons. Future facts are present, but hidden under the lesson name in which the fact will be taught. Progressive Assessments are versatile. Teachers may utilize the entire page, or save time and paper by using the top or bottom portion only.

Speed Check Chart (for Fluency Builder)
Educational research has shown that one of the highest probable yield strategies for improving academic achievement is to have students track their own progress. The Speed Check Chart allows students to do just that and was adapted from the “Student Speed Check” activity from interventioncentral.org. Use it daily with your Fluency Builder activity to increase both speed and motivation.
# Speed Check Charts Available: 1 (Repeated use with ALL lessons)
Looking for an incredibly quick way to determine lesson mastery? The Factivation!® One-Minute Assessments are designed to do just that! Fold the One-Minute Assessment page into fourths and direct students to “Attempt 1″. Allow 15 seconds per row for completion. (The assessment takes one minute total.) Assess mastery by looking at the “raised” 3-dimensional boxes. Spot-check the 2-D boxes (facts previously mastered) for retention. Circle “Pass or Try Again” at the top. If needed, save papers, reteach and move onto “Attempt 2″ when ready. The Factivation!® One-Minute Assessments provide teachers with an efficient, yet accurate assessment of understanding.

Subtraction Fluency Builder
Each Factivation!® lesson includes an Addition (and Subtraction) Fluency Builder activity. The purpose of this power printable is to build automaticity with this lesson’s focus facts. The same printable may be used daily to build fact fluency with the facts from the current lesson. This activity may be done with student partners or in a “Race the Teacher” format, which students really enjoy! It can also be completed with a partner or individually.
The NEW Speed Check Chart can accompany this printable to provide a research-based, highly motivational method of practice in which students chart their own progress from day to day.
Designed to address CCSS 1.OA.D.7, the Happy Equations page that accompanies each lesson can be done individually (following instruction), in pairs or small groups (to generate Mathematical discussion among students), or as a whole class activity.
Increase Rigor and Engagement Using this Procedure:
Present one equation at a time and take a class vote on whether the equation is True or False.
If the class is in agreement, call on volunteers to prove their answer using drawings, modeling with objects, etc.
If the vote is not unanimous, call on volunteers to debate and defend their thinking (following foundation lessons on how to debate fairly and respectfully).
Arrive at a class consensus based on the “arguments” heard from both sides.
If the equation shown is TRUE, students create a happy equation by illustrating a smiling face next to it. If FALSE, an “X” is to be drawn in the circle instead.
The purpose of this activity is for students to understand the meaning of the equal sign, and determine if equations involving addition and subtraction are true or false. http://www.corestandards.org/Math/Content/1/OA/D/7/
