THese are so cute! Thank you for sharing. My fifth graders always need lots of review on multiplication facts, and these are more fun than a flashcard. I like how you included the graph to record their scores. Competitive kids will like that.

Great idea with colored bottle caps! I have been using only clear bottle caps for games with fractions, decimals and percents. I would write on the clear caps with permanent marker. I tried permanent marker on blue caps, but it was hard to see. Now I have a reason to recycle caps in different colors. Thanks so much for sharing!

Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  November 8, 2013,  Christina O. asked:
I am getting ready to print my labels but I got the one inch stickers for milk caps. I noticed that the download prints 4 x 6. The labels for Avery 5410 are 3 x 4. Can I change your download to fit on these labels or how can I use theses labels that you listed on the got labels section of your directions
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  November 12, 2013FlapJack Educational Resources answered:
Hey, there! In the overview it does talk about several types of labels that can be used for bottle cap activities, but I do believe the specific directions for the math facts bottle caps say to use the 5408 labels. If I'm incorrect, please let me know where, and I completely apologize! I really don't think it's possible to change the dimensions of these label files to fit larger labels. I apologize if my instructions were misleading, but the best bet would be to use the 5408 labels.

On  July 29, 2013,  Buyer asked:
I created a full set of multiplication and a full set of division facts practice bottle caps. My students love them! We use the caps when playing math fact bingo! Would you be able to create a page of multiplication facts multiplying by zero?

* After receiving your response/suggestion, I was able to create a set on my own using the Avery website! Thank you!

On  July 31, 2013FlapJack Educational Resources answered:
Hey, there! Right now I'm a little swamped with things, but if you go to the Avery website to the Design and Print Online section, that is where I made mine. You could try your hand at it. I'm sorry I'm not much help right now!

On  July 28, 2013,  Denise W. asked:
I love this idea and went to a recycle store and got all the supplies, bought both Avery labels 5408 with 24 sticker on a page and 5410 with 12 on a page ( the milk jug size. I have printed and made a set of the smaller labels and love them. However, I can not figure out how to make the larger 5410 labels work. The one PDF you offered has 24 stickers on a page. Do you have one designed with 12 stickers on a page that I can purchase, because I would love too. Thank you so much Denise Ward.

On  July 28, 2013FlapJack Educational Resources answered:
Hey, Denise! I'm sorry if my instructions were misleading. This resource only uses 5408 labels. I do have a resource for the 5410 labels, but the skills and technology used may not be applicable for your needs - http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/QR-Code-Math-Fun-Bottle-Caps-FREE.

On  November 20, 2012,  Sevorah S. asked:
I am having a similar issue to Tammy's below. I followed your instructions but don't have a 4 x 6 option on any of the printers in the building. I have gone through a bunch of my labels and haven't been able to use any of them. One of our secretaries was trying to figure it out as well. Because it's a PDF file, if we chose the type of label first, we weren't able to copy and paste the information. I LOVE this idea but I'm getting pretty frustrated with it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

On  November 20, 2012FlapJack Educational Resources answered:
Hey, Sevvys, here is what I wrote to Tammy:

I'm sorry for your troubles! It seems each type of printer with these size of Avery labels has a unique setup for getting the labels to work. In general, on any printer, the sizing/margin part should always be set to none. Then, depending on your printer, you will need to experiment with what paper dimension works best. On one printer I use 4 x 6, on another I have used index card 4 x 6 borderless, I think Avery says to use envelope, but I haven't seen that work. I would definitely try to use the same label over and over again when experimenting and change the ink to draft. I would hate for a recycling activity to be wasteful and expensive for you! :( Please let me know if I can help in any other way. Thanks!

On  November 19, 2012,  Buyer asked:
I am having trouble printing these. I purchased the labels as you specified, but when I print they are just enough off that several (not all) on a sheet are misaligned and unable to be used. I do not know how to fix this and I am burning throug all of the labels. Suggestions please??
