The Addition & Subtraction Chalkboard Fact Families 5x7 Quiet Book Page helps build math skills.
Fact family numbers are placed in the corners and children discover the fact families that go with them.
Example: 5, 2, 7 (in the corners)
5 + 2 = 7
2 + 5 = 7
7 - 2 = 5
7 - 5 = 2

What is a fact family?
A fact family is a group of math facts using the same numbers. In the case of addition/subtraction, you use three numbers and get four facts. For example, you can form a fact family using the three numbers 10, 2, and 12: 10 + 2 = 12, 2 + 10 = 12, 12 − 10 = 2, and 12 − 2 = 10.
Where do we use fact families?
We can use fact families to reinforce or learn the connection between addition and subtraction, and to help children memorize the basic addition & subtraction facts. The two videos below explain several strategies for learning addition and subtraction facts, including number rainbows and fact families.
