Flash Me Some Math!

The cost of twenty five sets of addition and subtraction flash cards, and two sets of multiplication flash cards from ABC School Supply is $506, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

My first graders have done a terrific job of learning how to add and subtract. Now it's time to really memorize their math facts. One fun and independent way for students to practice their math facts is using flashcards. I tried to have the students make their own using index cards, but several students became frustrated because of their handwriting and the volume of math facts to write. My wish is for a class set of addition and subtraction flash cards. I also would like a few sets of multiplication flash cards for the higher performing students. I plan on having the students spend about 10 minutes a day practicing their facts with a partner. They could keep their flashcards at their desk. When they finish work early they could quietly work on their facts. If students are able to quickly recall math facts, then they won't have to rely on counting on their fingers when they have a math problem. This will give them a better chance to be much more successful in their state math tests. There will be 25 students who will benefit from this donation. I absolutely appreciate your consideration!
