Product Description

Addition Facts That Stick is a simple, effective, skill-building program that can be used to supplement any math curriculum.

Instead of making piles of flash cards and drilling them over and over, you’ll use hands-on games and activities (and a few worksheets) to help your child become completely fluent with all of the sums from 1 + 1 = 2 up to 9 + 9 = 18. With smart strategies, fun games, and a few quick worksheets, your child will master all the addition facts—in just six weeks!

Mastery of math facts is the foundation for all future math learning. Lay that foundation now, and make it solid, with Addition Facts that Stick. Also check out the rest of the Facts Mastery series!

131 pages (54 instructor pages and 77 student pages)

Contents

    • Six weeks of clear, easy to use, lesson plans with diagrams and illustrations
    • 9 Game Board Pages (single-sided)
    • 24 Practice Pages (single-sided)
    • Answer Key

How does this program work?

Your child will focus on one section of the addition table each week, and you’ll spend about fifteen minutes per day working on the facts together. On the first day of the week, you will show your child a strategy for solving the focus facts and play a fun game that practices those facts. For the rest of the week, you will play the new game together each day. Your child will also complete a short practice page each day to cement the focus facts and review all the other facts learned so far.

    5 out of 5 Finally, something that REALLY sticks!

    Our son began learning his addition facts around the age of six (he is now almost 8). The program/method initially used exposed the flash card visually and verbally. He went through this three times total, all addition facts THREE times. While he seemed to be “getting” the addition facts during that time, he quickly forgot them once he completed them. This was very discouraging to myself, and even more so to him. He simply could not pull the answers from his memory when asked some of the addition fact answers. (He remembered some of them, but not all of them). I found Addition Facts that Stick on the welltrainedmind website and decided to give it a try. For around $15, what could I lose? This simple yet thorough method is worth every penny! And boy did it help him tremendously. He is now able to visualize the addition fact in stead of trying to pull a random number from his mind that makes no sense as it seemed with the prior program. Our son is currently going through Subtraction Facts that Stick, and things are going well really! I hesitated to write a review until I could truly see that he was actually recalling the facts. Even if he occasionally gets stuck on a fact, he immediately visualizes it and gets the right answer on his own – something that is impossible with rote memorization. If your child needs additional help OR if this is the first time your child is starting his/her math facts, order this NOW! Hands down, this is the best way to teach and truly understand math facts!

  2. Question

    Can this be done with our current math program or would we need to pause it while learning the facts?

    • It can definitely be done as a supplement to your current math program. You don’t need to pause what you’re doing.

  3. Question

    Can you do the addition and subtraction together? Or do you recommend just one at a time?

    • The author recommends doing them sequentially (addition first, then subtraction), since subtraction is a lot easier once students know the related addition facts.

  4. 5 out of 5 Enjoyable for both teacher and student

    My son actually likes Math now and I actually no longer dread teaching it. We both enjoy it so much! The games are simple yet very engaging for my student and he isn’t loaded with pages upon pages of worksheets. This Math series has been a blessing to our family!

  5. 5 out of 5 Really fun and really works!

    My goal in homeschooling is to keep things fun for as long as I can. We all learn better when it is enjoyable! And for me at least, flashcards are not enjoyable. This method is perfect for nurturing that love for learning! We took a break from our normal math curriculum to master addition facts and my almost 6 year old is loving it. We include my 4 year old as well (when she is interested) and even she is catching on to some of the easier math facts! Highly recommend. It really does work! It is very clearly laid out and the games use household items. Such a great resource! I am glad I bought the PDF version so I don’t have to make copies. I can just print from home.

  6. Question

    My son just completed Preschool Math at Home by Kate Snow. He was completely engaged in the activities and program. Loved the book! Is Addition Facts that Stick the next book in the series? He’s four and I can’t tell if this is for much older kids? If so, is there anything you recommend between the two?

    • We’re so glad that your son enjoyed “Preschool Math at Home.” Kate Snow is right now writing “Kindergarten Math at Home.” The Addition Facts book, like the other Math Facts books, is probably too advanced for a four year old. It is recommended for ages 7-9, for children who’ve already learned the concept of addition, and now need to cement this skill in their minds.You might take a look at “Right Start Mathematics” or at “Math-U-See” (specifically the “Alpha” level).

  7. Question

    How many pages is the PDF version?

    • One person found this helpful

      The PDF has 132 pages, but several are blank because they are the back-side of student practice pages. So only about 105-110 pages would actually need to be printed.

    This was perfect for my daughter who is a visual and hands on learner! Flash cards were torture…..but she loves this program. Hope the multiplication and Division comes out soon!
