I loved to read, and I always had my nose in a book. I will admit, as more of a bookworm, mathematics was never really my strong suit. Yet, some of my friends were able to pick up math concepts relatively quickly and never seemed to struggle with their math facts. How are your kids doing in school with their math facts? Are they struggling? Does it come easy? Every child is different. Therefore, I am sharing a printable packet for the early learner with topics on basic math facts for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. This packet will definitely help improve their math skills and math fluency.
Math Facts Packet
Math facts definitely come easier to some elementary school children than others. I have designed my math facts packet for kindergarten through 3rd grade covering addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts. The packet also includes an addition chart and a multiplication chart as a reference, as well as math facts practice pages for each type of math problem.
The math facts taught in this packet are organized to help students learn the basic facts with concrete ideas on how to understand the different mathematical operations and are written for grade level understanding. I do not discuss fractions, decimals, or percentages in this lesson.
As a pretest to assess your child’s prior knowledge in math, you can have him complete the practice sheets and see how he or she does. Next, you can have them review the math facts pages and memorize the addition and multiplication tables. They can also practice skip counting and working through their math facts using the included number line pages, as well as the multiplication tricks that I have provided. Hopefully, these tricks will help with their multiplication facts, recall, and automaticity.
After your child has reviewed his math facts, he can practice them, again, using the practice pages. Make sure to have him or her double-check their work. After reviewing the math facts, addition and multiplication charts, and multiplication tricks, they should see an improvement.
If they need extra work, I recommend creating flashcards for whichever math lesson they are still struggling with. I like to color-code my flashcards using a different color index card for each operation. One fun way for your child to see his or her improvement is to let them tear up the index card for each problem they get correct after they have shown mastery of their math facts. Flashcards are also available at your local dollar store.
Anchor Charts & Interactive Notebooks
You can even use the math facts pages as anchor charts for your child’s interactive notebook and on the classroom wall. Interactive notebooks are a great way for students to keep notes and reflect on what they are learning. They are designed to engage and excite students. I recommend using a composition notebook, as not only are they inexpensive but your child does not have to worry about a mangled spiral binding. Also, the pages stay intact, unlike spiral notebooks where pages tend to get ripped out easily.
I really love having my students create their own personal interactive notebooks. I let them design their own covers which they can put on the cover of the notebook. Another reason that I like composition notebooks. When designing their covers, the only requirements that I have are they must include their name, my name, class subject, and there cannot be any offensive content on the cover. I actually keep a roll of clear packing tape in my desk drawer to tape the students’ covers onto their notebooks so they don’t fall off.
There are many resources available online for how to design and utilize interactive notebooks.
The anchor charts and math fact pages I have included in my packet are great resources to have your students include in their notebooks.
