Lots of flash cards, little results
I know most parents dread teaching their kids the addition facts. And no wonder—for many families, learning the addition facts means:
- Flipping through the never-ending stack of flash cards.
- Watching your child count on his fingers to figure out all the addition facts he doesn’t know.
- And worst of all, the frustration that comes when your child knew a fact yesterday and now seems to have completely forgotten it.
But, teaching your child the addition facts doesn’t have to be a long, tedious, and boring process.
In fact, it can actually be fun.
I’ve taught many children the math facts during my years as a classroom teacher, math tutor, and homeschool mom. Now, I’ve taken my approach and made it into an easy-to-use book that any parent can use to help their child master the addition facts.
You won’t find any rote memorization or stacks of flash cards in Addition Facts That Stick. Instead, you’ll a systematic, logical sequence of lessons that will teach your child all the facts from 1+1 up to 9+9.

Frequently Asked Questions
What’s included in the book?
Addition Facts That Stick is divided into 6 week-long units. Each unit includes:
- A quick, hands-on lesson for you to teach directly to your child. (Don’t worry if you’ve never taught math before—the book tells you exactly what to do.)
- A fun game that provides lots of practice with the focus facts for the week.
- Worksheets that provide review and give your child written practice.
How much time does it take?
Plan to spend about 15 minutes per day, 5 days per week on the activities. Most kids are able to finish the book in just 6 weeks.
Is my child ready to master the addition facts?
Addition Facts That Stick is for children who understand the concept of addition but don’t know the answers to the addition facts automatically. Your child should:
- recognize written numbers up to 20,
- understand the concept of addition, and
- have a beginning understanding of place-value (for example, knowing that 15 is the same as 10 + 5).
You know your child best, but most children 6 and up are developmentally ready to master the facts. This program is also a great choice for older children who never mastered the addition facts when they were younger.
What materials will I need?
All of the game boards and worksheets you’ll need for this program are included in the book. You’ll just need a few everyday items (like dice and playing cards) to complete the activities and play the games.
