Popsicle Addition will enable students to explore doubles and doubles-plus-one facts. Doubles is a special strategy to help students solve addition problems quickly. Included in this great skill building activity are 10 doubles facts for students to practice from 1 + 1 to 10 + 10. This game also provides students the opportunity to practice doubles- plus-one facts from 1 + 2 to 10 + 11. The doubles-plus-one strategy causes students to think "3 + 3 + 1" or "3 + 3 = 6, 6 + 1 = 7."

I love this game because it helps students learn a fact fluency strategy and prompts them to think flexibly with fact families. However, I wish that it was available without color backgrounds on every page. The pages use a lot of ink, so I am not able to print multiple copies for my class.
