Fact Family Games for Kids


If you have children working on their addition and subtraction skills, teaching them about fact families can go a long way!  The idea of fact families is that numbers can be grouped and reordered to create different equations.  This is a great way for children to visually see that numbers have relational values.  With the number 2, 5, and 7 for example we can make four different equations:

Two addition equations:

5+2=7 and 2+5=7

Two subtraction equations:

7-5=2  and 7-2=5

Learning that numbers can be interchanged like this provides children with core strategies they can use to solve more difficult math problems later in life.  Plus, fact families are fun to learn!

I’ve even included a follow up worksheet children can use to show mastery.

While I recommend purchasing a set of plastic number tiles (I use these all the time) you can also print a set of paper number tiles that you can laminate and use in your classroom.
