Your students will love these flip books for practicing strategies and facts and you will love the way they support individual, partner, small group, and whole class instruction. This product contains 11 strategy charts for use with the basic multiplication facts through 9 x 9. Printing the strategy chart on one side of the page and then the practice page on the opposite side (or printing them separately and gluing and laminating them back-to-back creates a book that can be ‘flipped’ depending on the focus of the activity. Laminating and binding the pages or placing the pages in protective sleeves held with a ring or in a binder creates an individual book for a student to use over and over individually, with a partner, or in a small group setting. Posting a class set of the strategy charts on a bulletin board creates an attractive display for student reference.
This set includes 11 strategy charts along with11 practice pages of mixed strategies and 11 practice pages with single strategy facts. Each mixed practice page contains the focus facts along with reviewing facts from previous strategies. Each single strategy practice page contains only focus facts. A color-coded chart is included to show how the strategies cover the multiplication facts through 9 x 9 and a black and white copy is also included to be used for record keeping. Both full page size and half page size PDF files are included.
The Flipping for Facts FLIP BOOK will become a valuable tool in the classroom to support the strategies taught, and also a reference that your students can use throughout the year. I have found students love using these flip books if they are just learning the addition facts in class or if they are struggling to learn the facts and are in need of remediation. I have used these as flipbooks in small group instruction where each child has a copy that has been laminated and bound. Students discuss and explore the strategies with the strategy charts and then practice with the practice pages. I have also used a copy of the strategy charts to post a strategy of the week.

For each strategy, a practice page is included with the facts directly related to the strategy as well as facts from previously explored strategies.
Use the practice page for a SPOT the fact activity to help students apply strategies. Have students find the facts on the page that directly related to the focus strategy. Students may circle the facts or solve the facts.
Use the practice page to discuss a variety of strategies. Students read a fact and then describe a strategy they would use to solve the fact. The facts and strategies may be from the focus strategy or from previously explored strategies.
The strategies represented here are not meant to be the only strategies students should use to reason with basic facts. They are meant as examples or models to help students as they move from counting strategies to reasoning strategies to mastery of basic multiplication facts.
