Build Number Sense and Fact Fluency

I am a bit behind and meant to post this LAST week...that is so the story of my life right now.

A-to-the-MEN, right?

Today I want to catch you guys up with  a review of the Facebook Live video  I did LAST Sunday!

This is an easy and QUICK method that a colleague shared with me!  She is an AMAZING math coach and always has the best advice! I believe this idea may be based on the program Math Their Way, but honestly, I am not sure.

I did have several forms that I shared in the video.  They are all available here FREE! I even added a blank set, in case your school community frowns upon any "magic" references.

I hope this helps your students become more fluent in math facts and number sense!

Pin it for later:



  1. Yes, this is definitely a Math Their Way activity. Thanks for reminding me about it! I have second grade this year and this will make an excellent beginning of the year center activity for most of them. BTW - You rock at printing numbers upside down!
    Thanks for your consistent stream of excellent tips. I use so many of your suggestions in my classroom.

  2. Mandy! I'm so glad I found you! Yes, math their way.....fantastic stuff! I teach kindergarten, and I introduce this activity called "break the train" where I use unified cubes and they record their addition findings on trains of 4,5, 6, etc, what ever the number they are working on.
    Thanks for sharing!

    1. Yay! Thank you so much LOVE the idea of break the train...and such an easy tie to fact families later!!
