Fluency Tip: Chants as Attention-Getters!

chants bulletin board

Login to the Members’ Site to print this Multiplication Chants Bulletin Board Set!

Here’s a nearly effortless way to build fact fluency!

Watch the video tutorial below for a demonstration of how to utilize the Factivation!┬« chants as your daily class attention getters. Teachers use attention getters multiple times throughout the day. If I had to estimate the number of times I would use an attention getter with my class, I would have to say it would be in the range of 20-30 times a day. Just imagine 20-30 daily exposures to Multiplication facts like 6×3, 8×7, 7×7, etc! This is a powerful, but little-known secretthat I would encourage you to start using today, literally- TODAY! Also, why not get your K-2 teachers on board? You know they use attention-getters daily as well, maybe more times than you! Imagine 2-3 years worth of daily exposure to the fifteen Multiplication facts the attention-getters address!?! Seriously, what are you waiting for? It’s an easy but highly effective means of reinforcement!

PLEASE ALLOW ONE MINUTE for video to fully download.  Thank you!

    Thanks for suggesting using chants as attention getters. I work with small groups of students, and plan to do this as I bring them to my room and back to theirs.

    I would like to be able to print the chants. Is there a printable version on your site?

    Thanks for your comment, Cheri. You can print the chants from the Multiplication/Division members’ homepage. Once logged in, look in the left column under “Classroom Resources”. There are two printable versions: “Chants’ Attention Getters Guide” and “Chants Quick Reference”. This is a quick but effective way to reinforce many Multiplication facts.
