Spiral review – Spiral review is built into the math curriculum at my school. Any homework assignment from their math homework journal includes various problems that ask students to draw upon their background knowledge or previous learning. Students are also regularly assessed on previous learning during tests that examine their understanding of a new concept.
Fact fluency practice – Station rotation activities often included an independent station with a choice board that includes digital math games that allow students to practice math facts, such as multiplication facts. Sometimes I also use these as warm ups.
