Mathwire Lattice Template
http://mathwire.com/templates/lattice1.pdf

Mathwire Make your own ‘Triangle’ math facts cards for (+/ -) and (x/ division)
http://mathwire.com/templates/trianglecardstemplate.pdf
These cards are helpful because you see the whole family of facts for each set of numbers.  For example, the top of a card for addition could have the number ’18′ at the top, and the left bottom corner would have the number ’3′ and the right bottom corner would be ’6′ so you could either cover the top number (18) and ask, “What is ’3′ X ’6′ OR you could cover the right corner and ask “What is 18 divided by ’3′ ?
