Let’s talk about fact families! It’s an important part of our second grade math curriculum. I love to provide tons of fun learning activities for my students to complete during independent math time or centers that help them build their fact family fluency. These worksheets have been so helpful in my classroom, so I wanted to share them with you today!
These activities are great for centers, stations or review! You can use them for morning work or even quick and easy homework! Your students that are fast finishers will love these as well!
Fact Families Activities
Students cut and paste these sand pails and they glue them together on the answer sheet. You can have them color before or after they are done cutting and pasting. We all know students can use practice cutting and coloring, too!
Here’s another great activity for practicing fact families. In this activity, students need to differentiate between three numbers and decide whether they are fact families! This really requires students to think!
Students will have fun building ice cream cones as they work to sort the facts correctly. You can get this worksheet FREE here.
All you need for this activity is a paper clip and a pencil. Students will use the two supplies “spin a family.” Students can compare problems when they are finished. This activity would be great for a small group center.
In this activity, students are working on finding the missing number in the problem. Then they will work to build the addition and subtraction problems to form the family. This worksheet would be perfect to put in these dry erase pockets that I mentioned over at this post. Students can use a dry erase marker and erase when complete!
