Fact Family “Turn Around” Dance
To introduce fact families, we do the turn around dance. Kids hold up a fact and we sing as they make a new fact that is true. It helps them see a great visual and begin to be comfortable moving numbers around to make fact families.
Fact Family Activites
I used my Monster Fact Family which takes the kids through all the facts with 6 triangle flash cards each level.
|First they cut out their flashcards. Then, they write their fact families.|
Sometimes we mix it up and write our fact families on a white board.
After writing two addition facts and two subtraction facts, they studied the facts by covering up a number and trying to remember or figure out what was missing from the family.
