Hello once again! I’m Jasmine from Buzzing With Mrs. McClain. Today I’m going to share with you a great technology tool that I use in my classroom called Xtra Math. Xtra Math is a great website to use when trying to get your students to learn their math facts.
To use Xtra Math, you begin by setting up your class. Once all of your students are enrolled in your class, they will be given a unique password that they will enter every time they complete a session of Xtra Math. Basically, it will flash math facts and the students type them in. I love that Xtra Math shows them the answers once they get them wrong and gives them the opportunity to correct their answers. I have been using Xtra Math during my Daily 5 Math time and I can really see the improvement in my students’ ability to quickly answer those facts.
As students progress through Xtra Math, they receive reports of their overall performance. This can be shared with parents as well. Hopefully you can use this tool in your classroom too! Enjoy your day!
