Triangular Flash Cards


These are the cards I mentioned in the previous post. I only made cards for the 2-9 Fact Families. My children really don't need help with the 1, 0, or 10 family by any means. For just starting out I'd recommend not covering any numbers of facts when you flip the card up. Simply turn the card over, discuss it if you want, and then point out which number will be representing the answer today.

Now, you can clearly use them anyway you want & no one's going to be offended. I'm just mentioning how we used them when we first started out. The idea was that I wanted these facts memorized. My kids all ready know how to add & these weren't being used for fact review but for speed & memorization. Thus, giving them the answer was going to help them more then asking them to figure out the answer themselves.

One of the 2 & 4 fact family cards have  bloopers on them, can you spot them? I need to correct it & then I will post the updated cards. If you find anymore errors please drop me a line and let me know. I'll post corrected cards if/when needed. In the mean time, you can download the original flashcards here.
