The following links and website provide free ways to help you learn and memorize your addition math facts. Some of them may require you to print out cards and cut them out.
My favorite way to make a set of flashcard is to use 3 by 5 note cards. A pack of 100 can usually be found for around $1. I pick up these cards at the dollar store all the tiem to help my kids with whatever they are learning and working on.
Another great idea is to use post its and post them on the bathroom mirror. My kids practice their memorization as they brush their teeth or wash their hands. Although i do have boys that don't need the whole mirror to groom themselves.
