Ten Minutes a Day Level 1: Gr 2/Yr 3

Designed to teach number facts with strategies, Ten Minutes a Day 1 steps up the level of number work from the Let’s Go! series by increasing the number of facts on a page.

Strategies are explained in the front of each book.

Teach the strategy, practise the page, AND here is the fun part… TIME the students! Students record their time on the top of the page. They love to race other students or beat their own time!

The series has one sheet for every day of the year. 10 minutes of number work before you start your lesson. Just like we ask students to read every day, it is equally important for students to think and revise number facts every day.
