Classroom Procedures- Talking Signal: I will indicate how much (or how little!) students are allowed to talk during class. They can check the Talking Signal during different activities to see what the noise level should be.

Math Fact Fluency Sticks are a powerful tool for students to use in the 1st grade or 2nd grade classroom. I believe in this system because it is developmentally appropriate, research based, and meets the needs and ability levels of all the students in your classroom in a low stress and low maintenance way. Math fact fluency sticks come with both addition and subtraction facts in both vertical and horizontal form. They also come with progress trackers, benchmarks, & parent letters!
