Please encourage your student NOT to wait until the last minute to complete this AR requirement. Be sure to check out for book recommendations and AR levels.

Students should take a few minutes each day to practice Multiplication Facts. Our goal is to complete 100 facts in less than 5 minutes. Sing them, write them, practice them….anything to KNOW THEM! There are tons of math fact drill and game websites and free apps available.
