What do you do for Math Facts? Do you just do facts addition and subtraction up to the value of 10?
That is our standard in my district.
We have to go up to 18.
We have to know the math facts up to 10 in first grade. Here is a great site for practicing math facts. Go to the online math fact practice.
I go up to 10 and also do double facts up to 20. Once I feel most of the kids have mastered that, I may go up to 15, but that always depends on the group. I start every single math lesson with about two minutes of just asking them addition/subtraction facts. It sounds rote and old school (and I guess it is!) but they pick up on it quick this way. I use Everyday Math and they don't do a whole lot with memorizing addition/subtraction facts, so I came up with that and it seems to work.

We use to do up to 12 at my old school. At my private school however we go up to 20. We too also focus on doubles facts. Are you planning to have timed tests?
