Reviewing flash cards is an excellent way for students to memorize basic information, such math facts. I've created several sets of math flash cards you can download:
Addition: 0 through 12, and 13 through 17
Subtraction: 0 through 12, and 13 through 17
Multiplication: 0 through 12
Division: 0 through 12

Choose between vertical flash cards, which look like traditional flash cards, or horizontal cards, which require less paper to print.
Teachers have printed these for distribution in their classrooms as an economical way to provide a set of cards for each student. Students receive a set of math flash cards for free, which they can review at home or school as often as needed.
A printed multiplication chart can help students learn basic multiplication facts. In addition to the math facts, the chart illustrates the multiples in an easy-to-understand, visual way.
All multiplication facts from 0x0 to 12x12 are included.

There are several world maps on this site you can download and print for your students or classroom. The maps show the outlines of the countries and/or continents.
The maps are useful when teaching students the names of continents, countries, and even world capitals. Continent names are included on the maps, but country and capital city names are not listed on most of the maps.
Ask your students write this information on the maps as a learning exercise.
The printable world maps and U.S. map include:
Map of the World, Countries Outlined, with the Americas centered
Map of the World, Countries Outlined, with Europe/Africa centered
Map of the World, Coastal Outline, with the Americas centered

I taught a few classes at the company where I used to work. Asking my students to solve a puzzle at the beginning of class often helped them to focus in preparation for the lesson. Here are free Sudoku puzzle pages you can give to your students:

Sudoku is a number-based logic puzzle. To solve the puzzle, you must fill in the numbers 1 through 9 exactly once in the empty spaces of each row, column, and 3x3 cell.
Word searches are another type of puzzle many students enjoy. They can be handed out when your students need a break or as a warm up for class (as mentioned above).

There are 16 different printable word searches, including Back to School, Butterfly, Dinosaur, Earth Day, Memorial Day, Rain Forest, Wedding, and Spanish Vocabulary word searches. There is also a browser-based version of each word search that can be solved online.
Special Needs. I also have a collection of printable "special needs" word search puzzles. These simplified word searches are helpful for children or adults with traumatic brain injury, autism, or other cognitive special needs. Also free, of course!
