# Fact Family Booklets

Baloo and I were recently working on fact families.  As we worked through them I thought it would be nice to have a simple resource that he could go back to when needed.  We started making these little fact family booklets.  They’re very simple easy to put together!

We’ve taken to reading a lot of books related to math.  Baloo seems to do well with stories.  I’ve compiled a list of a few math related books.  Brian P Cleary is amazing, so of course I’ve included his addition and subtraction books!

Thank you very much for shari these booklets.ng

3. These are awesome! Any chance you’ll be making a multiplication version? We’re just starting that, and I’m feeling lazy (Yes, I know I COULD make it, but if you already had plans to).

Definitely! I’ll do my best to have them up Monday 🙂

4. I feel super-silly saying this, but how do you use these? It isn’t obvious to me what the pattern is, or what the numbers at the top of each page are for. Do you have an example of a completed page? Thanks!

I’m copy and pasting this from another comment asking the same question 🙂

Don’t feel silly! You’re definitely not the only one who has asked 🙂 I’m actually going to do a post on it soon!

We make them into little booklets. I cut apart each page and staple them together for each number. Then I have my son go through them and write down the facts. So on the page that says 1, 2, 3 at the top the facts would be 1+2=3, 2+1=3, 3-1=2 and 3-2=1

Then we use them for reference while still learning fact families. Hope that helps! If not, I’ll get the visual post up soon 🙂

Thanks for sharing these! They look great & I’m excited about the possibility of helping my kiddos learn math facts.

My problem is that both my husband & myself are stumped about how to set these up? I feel silly asking but how are they designed to be used???? Thanks!
