Fern Smith's Mouselike Flash Cards!

More Mickey Mouse Flash Cards!
I previously posted about making flash cards from Disney paint sample cards from Home Depot, Lowes or Wal*Mart. My students love them and I finally got a chance to pick up some more colors. I always ask the paint area manager if I can have some, so I don't feel guilty! Never once have they said NO!   
To use these cards, hide one of the corner numbers with your thumb or finger. Then when you realize what number is hidden, you can figure out that multiplication and division go hand in hand.
One card will have 10 X 6 = 60,  60 / 10 = 6, etc.
This time I made the 6's in one color and the 12's in another color, the picture looks like the purple 7's are the same as the purple 6's, but taking photos are not my strong point ~ one is from the "Pooh" colors and the other is from the "Princess" colors! :)  
If you are not familiar with triangular flash cards, they are W.O.N.D.E.R.F.U.L! When I have two or three minutes I put them up on the board with the Elmo camera. Right now my class really needs practice for division. Hide one of the corner numbers with your hand, now the students need to answer 
**48 divide by 12** 
This little craft will also work for addition and subtraction! 
 Your students will ♥love♥ it, it is a terrific "time filler" when you have a minute or two before you line up to go somewhere!
