Flik-flaks are a versatile resource that can be used for daily practice of counting and remembered facts.

In small group situations, each child can have a flik-flak and respond to “show me….” questions. In whole class sessions, the adult can use the flik-flak as a focus for practising number bonds and calculation skills.

Use the flik-flaks to practise:



-Number bonds within 10

-Multiplication tables (2 eyes, 8 tentacles/arms)

-Using mathematical language

-Developing reasoning skills


Print this octopus themed flik-flak onto paper, laminate and fold along the black lines. Now you’re ready to go!
