Addition Soccer - 3 Ways to Play -
30 Page Download – Over 100 addition facts to 18. Includes 2 different soccer fields (8 x 11 and 12 x 18 and 2 sizes of yardage dice, as well as a yardage spinner). You can print the soccer balls back to back so that when they are turned text side down, they still look appealing… it’s designed to match up perfectly. OR you can leave the backs of the soccer balls plain and not print the plain soccer balls OR you can print out the file as is and glue the backings on the fact soccer balls. To print back to back:
Print pages 1-17: these directions, 2 yardage dice, 1 yardage spinner, 2 game boards, and 9 pages of addition soccer balls.
Place the addition soccer ball sheets back into the printer’s paper tray face up and facing you.
Print pages 18-26 and the backs of the soccer balls will be printed out. Then, just take each sheet to the paper cutter and cut each sheet into 12 square cards.
Pages 27-28 are 2 optional recording sheets for students to write the facts they solve.
Pages 29 and 30 are 2 optional Soccer Addition All-Star Awards.
Activity 1: Directions:
Divide players into 2 teams.
Each team has a token/game piece to place at the start point on the soccer field.
Place balls face down.
Players take turn picking a soccer ball.
If the player solves the addition fact correctly, s/he tosses the die. (die included; just fold and tape/glue)
The player moves the team game piece according to what the die says. Each team has a path to follow:
• 10 yards
• 20 yards
• 30 yards
Each time a goal scores, students keep track on the scoreboard.
More Ways To Play
Activity 2: Select the cards that are appropriate for your students. Place cards face down in a pile. Students roll a die to see how many cards they can pick. Students keep each card that they correctly solve. The game is over when all soccer balls have been drawn. The winner is the student with the most soccer balls.
Activity 3: Select the facts that a group of students needs to practice. Students line up the soccer balls as though they are on a path. This creates a “follow the path” type game. Each student has a game token. Students take turns rolling a number die, moving that number of spaces and solving the fact that is on the ball where the student lands.
