Most volumes begin with an explanation of basic arithmetic operations namely: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Reference tables are supplied to provide clues for quick mental arithmetic and mastery of math facts. When ready to be tested, the student can select a drill, which has 10 questions and are selected from a database of number pairs for calculation. The Basic Level volumes use simple single digit numbers and the interactive math software at the Advanced Level uses mostly double digit numbers for math practice problems. Each drill is then scored and timed with the results saved. With the test records, students can follow their own progress and adults who may be supervising can monitor progress and assess if there are any learning issues that require intervention.
The game is then played exactly like a normal game of bingo, with the teacher playing the part of the bingo caller, but instead of the teacher calling out the numbers printed on the cards, the teacher instead calls out math problems (the teacher may also write the problem on the blackboard). The student bas task is to solve each problem, and then look for the number on their bingo card. As you can imagine, this can be a lot of fun, and before you know it students can forget they are learning math! What is more, teachers can also easily vary the game play, for example, by using different types of math problems, or perhaps even by asking members of the class to solve each problem before moving on to the next bingo call.
After knowing the basics, children are taught beginning and ending blends, how to identify consonant digraphs (such as "sh" in the word "she"), what the long vowel sounds are, such as the "a" in "cape", and the use of R-controlled vowels (which are also called murmur diphthongs, as in the "ar" sound in such words as "car", "guitar" and "Arthur"). Diphthongs are the use of two vowels which slur together to make a single sound, such as the "o" and "i" in the word "moisture". Using additional worksheets these practices can help students more quickly recognize the joining of vowels which will help them improve their reading speed.
