Flash Cards can help your child to memorize basic addition, subtraction, multiplication and division facts. Each of the documents below have up to eight pages with each page containing four questions.
They are listed below alongside an example of the type of question they contain. These cards can be used whenever there is a spare minute or two to practice basic facts.
Before working with the flash cards and with other memorization methods, be sure that your child has an understanding of the arithmetic concepts. Working with real objects such as counters (buttons or anything that can easily be manipulated will do) will help develop such an understanding.
The five documents below contain number cards from 1 to 100. There are four numbers on each page and they can be cut to make individual number cards. Each card includes an illustration of the quantity that the number represents.
The 7-page document below has number cards that can be used to show numbers to 999 in their expanded form.
Open and print this fact triangles sheet and then cut along the lines to get twenty-seven triangles.
The 10-page document below contain printable fraction cards with halves, thirds, fourths, fifths, sixths, eighths, and tenths. Each one shows a fraction both with numbers and graphically. The numbers and the shading on the fraction bar can be toggled on and off so that the cards can be used for exercises.
Idea: Switch the numbers and/ or the shading off and get your child to help make the fraction cards.
The links below will open flash cards that don't need to be printed and that your child can click on to show addition, subtraction, multiplication and division questions. The questions are random and never ending so they will allow for lots of practice with basic arithmetic facts.
