Do you have a kid who struggles to keep those math facts in his head? These math flash cards are a little different, designed just for my highly visual, hands-on child. They can be used for addition and subtraction. Each card (just under 2”x4”) covers a fact family, so one card can be used to commit 6 + 4 = 10, 4 + 6 = 10, 10 – 4 = 6, and 10 – 6 = 4 to memory. No flipping needed, the entire fact is contained on the front of the card. The set covers facts adding up to 10 or less (zeros are not included).

You will need a color printer and 3 sheets of cardstock to print these cards.
You might also like to use the accompanying worksheets (click here or on the picture to download):
For the child who freaks out when there’s a lot on a page, just cut the grid apart and have him/her do one fact family at a time. This file prints on 4 sheets of plain paper (or you could print on cardstock and make cards) and covers all the same facts as the flash cards (I omitted 1+1, however, because including it would have meant a whole extra sheet for it).
Here they are in action.
