Magic Answer (Flip Chute)

Don't we all just love Pinterest? I know I do! I have been wanting to implement math centers into my routine this year and I slowly want to teach my students games that can one day be part of their math centers. I am currently working on a math fluency "program" (future post) and I knew that I wanted math facts to be a big part of my math centers. I saw this flip chute on pinterest and I thought it was perfect.


I went ahead and made one of my own. It was actually pretty easy.


There is a video on Classroom DIY, but I decided to do a more step-by-step video. You can see that video here.

I also  made a template in word that you can go ahead and type your questions and answers into. Click the photo to visit my TPT where you can download the template for free.

    1. You are very welcome. I'm still trying to figure out a template where I can flip the answers so they will come out right side up.

  2. Love your flip shoot. I made one years ago when I was in 3rd grade! I would love to have you come and visit my blog and enter my giveaway. You could win a laminator!

    1. I saw it on Pinterest and I knew I had to make one. I didn't have any intention of making one yet because they are a lot of work to make it, if you decorate it as much as I did. I was drinking lemonade and I didn't want to through out the carton, so I just made it now! :-)

  4. Firstly, LOVE THIS. Secondly, watched the video (so great!) - love how you are like the queen of crafting supplies. So many cool tools! I'm super jealous! Out of curiosity, what do you think the age range is for this shoot? Like, do you think older kids might find it less interesting because they understand how it works? Thanks for sharing your expertise!!

    1. Haha, yes I have a ton of crafting tools. I have my own craft room in my house. It's my hobby of choice. :-) I think older kids 3-5 would enjoy it. I definitely think K-2 would find it the most interesting because they really do think it's magic.
