Free Printable Addition and Subtraction Flash Cards

Craftiments:  Free Printable Addition and Subtraction Flash Cards, 0 - 9

I recently began teaching my Kindergartener how to add and subtract. Once she understood the basic ideas behind the computations, I wanted to give her some flash cards to practice the math facts.  I searched the internet for flash cards with the answer printed on the reverse side and could not find anything suitable, so I ended up making my own.

Would you like a set of flash cards for your child?  Click on the links below to download the pdf files from Google Docs.  There is a separate file for each set of math facts, 0 - 9.

To print with the answer on the reverse side of the cards, you will need to instruct your printer to print on both sides of the paper.  Check the box next to Print on both sides of paper and click the radio button next to Flip on long edge.  Be sure the size is set to Actual size and the orientation to Portrait.

If your printer does not automatically print on both sides of the paper, you can do it manually.  Print page 1, flip and place the paper back in the tray in the correct orientation, then print page 2.  You might have to print a couple practice sheets to figure out what direction your printer feeds the paper.

Cut out your flash cards along the gridlines on the front side.  To make them a little more exciting, you can print  on colored card stock or even scrapbook paper.  And finally, a little tip to make sorting a snap, clip or round the upper right corner of each card.

As always, this free printable is for personal use only.  Please do not sell or distribute them as your own.  If you wish to share the flash cards, please link back to this post and not directly to the download site.  Thank you!


  1. Awesome! Mine is just in preschool right now, but it was on my list of things to look for before summer vacation so we can go through it before kindergarten starts in the fall. :) Gracie is learning to read right now, and she can count to 40 without help, so I figure simple addition and subtraction is next!

  2. Great printable! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Thank you for putting this up! My students love these cards :) The only thing is, we found a mistake in the addition for 3's and also the addition for zero's. I think they were both 0+3 and 3+10 (I'm not 100% sure because I'm just trying to remember off the top of my head. Thank you again!

    1. Ooops! Thank you for letting me know. It's fixed now :)
