Five Frame Flash Cards document

Print on cardstock this class-size set of five frame flash cards for developing automaticity with basic facts.  A blank frame is also provided that may be used as a mat for all students to show what they see (by moving counters into the frame).  Or students may use a bead rack, fingers, or written numerals/equations to show what they see.  One color with empty frames represents parts contained within 5 and two colors represents partitions and combinations to five.  Allow pre-numerate students to initially count the dots and then advance the challenge by flashing the frames to encourage internalization and quantitative reasoning. (These are strategies learned through the Math Recovery teacher development program). Posted June 4, 2008.


Ten Frame Flash Cards document

Print on cardstock this class-size set of ten frame flash cards for developing automaticity with basic facts, including pair-wise and five-wise representations.  One color with empty frames represents parts contained within 10 and two colors represents partitions and combinations to 10.  Once students have internalized the structures to 5, further challenge students by flashing the ten frames to extend their quantitative reasoning and to develop higher level mental math strategies.  Track group understanding by having students place counters into an empty frame (provided on the last page), showing the quantities in different ways on a bead rack, and/or by writing equations.  Flash two or more frames to strengthen understand of place value and to further develop advanced mental computation, which may be used in conjunction with longer/larger bead racks. (These are strategies learned through the Math Recovery teacher development program). Posted June 19, 2008.
