Math facts practice has always been a part of my daily math block! Elementary students need lots of practice mastering their addition, subtraction, multiplication and division facts. I used to use math facts flashcards, but after years of finding long-lost flashcards on the floor, missing from who knows who’s math fact baggie, I decided there had to be another way!
I wanted something that required less management (= less work for me), and that was more efficient for students...
Hello, FACT FLIPS!
Fact Flips are math fact flashcards simplified! Each fact family is practiced on ONE SHEET of paper!
How do they work?
Students simply fold over the answer flap (photo directions included), cut in between the equal signs, and work on quizzing themselves on each fact. If a student gets the fact correct, they leave the flap open. If they get it incorrect, they close the flap and come back to it again.
Fact Flips are perfect for partner practice, a parent-led small group, or for independent practice. Students can take them home or keep them in their class work folders.
You can easily differentiate Fact Flips, giving each kiddo one for the fact family they are working on mastering.
There are so many options included with these, too….facts in sequential order, or facts mixed up. Facts with answers printed, or facts with blank answers. You choose what works best for your students!
I have Fact Flips for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division!
What about storing Fact Flips?
Easy….Pop them into a file crate for quick storage and easy student access. I even have free file folder tabs for you over on the blog (just search “Fact Flips”).
Can we reuse the Fact Flips?
Absolutely! Just print them onto heavy paper or card stock, and keep a set handy in your math centers.

I can’t wait for you to try these out with your students!
I love this idea because it is more individualized for each student, and they can work on the facts that they struggle with. As a future teacher, I will definitely use this.
Hello! I love reading into your blog! I am currently a 2nd grade teacher! We do a lot of practice with math facts and these fact flips look like something my students would love! From the bright colors to the simplicity makes them fun and would keep my students engaged! I love how the can me differentiated for all the different levels of my students! Some could be working on the plus 1’s whiles others are starting on minus. At our district one of our non negotiable items each year are math facts! These would be a wonderful manipulative to have in my classroom!
