    I think the students, in general, need more rote practice. One way to do that is to build it in with station or center work. You might do this only one or two days a week. I believe I was taught that kids need about 40 repetitions for the learning to stick.

    Also, if time allows perhaps you can spend 5 minutes a day working with rote questions on whiteboards. My students seem to do so much more practice on the whiteboards than they ever thought about with paper and pencil.
