Math struggles are real in this house. Continuous practice is really important for the girls. Recently we had the opportunity to review the Speed Wheel Drills from Math Essentials. What a great way tor practice in short bursts.
The purpose of speed wheel math drills to for kids to be able to practice quickly those essential math facts. Without these being memorized, it does make it harder to tackle those middle and high school math programs.
The Speed Wheel Drills series from Math Essentials includes a book for Addition, Multiplication, and Division. Instead of practice being a full pages of problems, students can practice all the math problems for each number. This type of practice allows for easier memorization.
Each book contains more than 1,440 speed wheel drills that you can assign for children to tackle so many each day.
I like the ability to let them work on so many each day. Caty worked on the addition book that we received. It did not take long the facts that she has been struggling with to start clicking more. Now with her learning challenges, the extra practice has been great. The problems she has been working on are not stretched across a page. So this has kept her from feeling super anxious as she works through the problems.
That is a great benefit to these Speed Wheel Drills. The practice did not cause them anxiety. They were able to get a lot of practice in what seemed to them to be a half a page or even a quarter of a page depending on the problems that day.
Lydia practiced her multiplication and division facts. Again, the practice was fun. It was different. It was not just a case of constant sheets of practice.
I like the flexibility. This is not a course that teaches how to solve these problems. These are strictly practice books. You can assign as much or as little each week as your student needs. With over 1,440 speed wheel drills, the materials will last your student for a while and will help them reach mastery stages.
