Kids love doing math once they know their basic math facts. When they have mastered those, they feel confident and able, which in turn enables them to learn more! The problem is getting them to become capable in their basic addition, subtraction, multiplication and division facts. Most of my students come from very low-income, not highly educated families. Many do not have parents who are able to help them with their work. In addition, the kids in our area have a lot to worry about outside school - violence, drugs, and poverty, just to name a few of the issues they deal with every day. They just don't have the resources to go out and buy the kind of supplies and educational games that many of us had. These flashcards can help get the kids who are below grade level get caught up on their addition and subtraction facts, and get all the kids going on their multiplication and division facts. They have two sets right now to share and they take a few out at recess and lunch and practice them all the time. If they were able to use their own set, they would use them all the time and learn quickly. Mastering a subject really means so much to kids who don't often succeed at much. Their faces light up and they walk around all day telling anyone who will listen that they can now "do division." Please think about helping my students! Thank you!
