Mental Math - 356 Flash Cards Free!

356 Free Addition and Subtraction Flash Cards

I am feeling pretty generous and have created some Mental Mathematics flashcards for K-3 to assist with teaching mental strategies for addition and subtraction. 

Please click on the link below to download the Mental Mathematics cards - FREEBIE! 

How to use: 

My Year 1s complete the Mental Mathematics Challenge everyday.

Time:   15minutes 
Focus: Addition and Subtraction
Resources: Jessie's Resources Mental Math Cards laminated and cut. 

Make a ladder - Each student has their name on a laminated card on a pin up board with velcro. All cards need to be visible and on top of each other. 
Selection: Select the bottom 2 students to go first. You hold up one problem in front of the 2 students. Whoever gets the answer correct first stays on to challenge the next person on the ladder and so on until there is a winner. 

This is a great way to monitor the progress of students and my kids get really into it! 

Hope you enjoy!

  4. Thank you for uploading the flash cards - they were great! Quick question, though: are you quizzing your students on negative numbers? Because half of the subtraction flash cards will result in answers that are negative numbers...

    Thanks again!
