Math Facts Flip Book

Every year, during Back to School shopping, I stock up on these amazing spiral flip books.  
I always find them on sale at Office Depot, but you can get them anywhere.  {Amazon has them but they are more expensive. Boo.}  I stock up on them because you can use them for about one zillion different things.  Today I want to show you how I use them for math centers.  
First things first... I write basic addition facts inside of the flip book.  
I write the answer on the back of the card, very lightly, in pencil.  Can you even see it?  
At the math station, I provide students with the flip book, a part-part-whole mat, and some manipulatives.  I love using ERASERS as manipulatives.  I got this giant bag of cute erasers in the Dollar Spot.  You can switch these out seasonally, and your kiddos will be thrilled!  

Students can work through the flip book and record their work on a dry erase board. {I found this lined dry erase board in the Target Dollar Spot.  Best deal ever!}
For added accountability, have students record their work in their math journals so you can "check" their work.  For more addition & subtraction resources, check out my PRINTABLES & TASK CARDS, or find a big BUNDLE here.  

I also use these spiral flip books to teach sight words.  Check out my blog post on Tactile Sight Word Books using glitter glue!
