Flashcards are often used for rote learning and memorization. My students commented that they were boring. I wanted to expand their use to include understanding of concepts. So I decided to create these activities in order to make flashcards more engaging for my students while helping me to teach the Common Core State Standards.
The center activities and games included in this packet were designed to help students improve their understanding of addition and subtraction concepts while also increasing their fluency with basic facts. They can be used with any set of commercial or teacher made flashcards.
This packet includes:
3 addition activities
2 subtraction activities
1 addition game instruction sheet
1 subtraction game instruction sheet
1 form for a student invented game
1 set of horizontal addition flashcards (with sums to 12)
