Operations and Algebraic Thinking Flip Cards for Kindergarten are a combination of concept cards and task cards that cover all common core standards for the Operations and Algebraic Thinking domain for Kindergarten.

Operations and Algebraic Thinking Flip Cards contain 52 different cards for Grade K based on the Common Core State Standards for the Operations and Algebraic Thinking domain.

Operations and Algebraic Thinking Flip Cards help with understanding of addition with objects, addition word problems within 10, the decomposition of numbers 1-10 with pairs of other numbers, finding the missing number that adds with another number to 10, subtraction with objects, subtraction word problems within 10, and a mixture of addition and subtraction problems for fluency within 5.

Math flip cards are a cross between task cards and concept cards that can be part of an interactive notebook. Some cards explain concepts, and other cards ask students to complete a certain task in order to understand a concept. These flip cards are designed to be copied, laminated, and taped in a stack as shown on either a heavy piece of cardstock or on different sides of a file folder. Lamination is needed so that students can practice the skills of each objective, erase, and then practice again at a later time. Two stacks can be made on each side for a total of up to eight different stacks with one file folder. The titles at the bottom of each card should show as they are taped down, one on top of the other. Answers can also be written on the back of cards for students to check.

Flip cards can be used for class instruction, in learning centers, for independent review, or in a game setting. Answers and/or additional problems can be written on the reverse side of the card if the teacher chooses to do so. The cards can be printed in color or grayscale. For long term use, you will want to laminate the cards first so that students can write and erase on each card using a dry-erase marker.

The following Common Core standards are covered:

Understand addition as putting together and adding to, and understand subtraction as taking apart and taking from.
Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings1, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.

Solve addition and subtraction word problems, and add and subtract within 10, e.g., by using objects or drawings to represent the problem.

Decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 5 = 2 + 3 and 5 = 4 + 1).

For any number from 1 to 9, find the number that makes 10 when added to the given number, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record the answer with a drawing or equation.

Fluently add and subtract within 5.
