Take half of a large piece of construction paper and fold it in half. Cut 1 1/2 inch pieces all the way across the top layer. Write the math sentence on the top and the answers underneath. Have each student make their own to help them study double facts.
The students start to get very excited when they notice the pattern of counting by 2's.
When the students are finished making the flip charts pair them up and have them quiz each other on their double facts. We switched partners (within 5 seconds) twice for extra practice. They thought that was fun.
We also made these flip charts and then used paint to show the double.
