### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I am always looking for ways to make ordinary items into manipulatives for the classroom. A couple of years ago, I discovered that many math activities can be created using dominoes. Since a complete set is not expensive, I started exploring all the ways I could use them in a math lesson; hence, the construction of this 25 page resource. Most activities are aligned with the Common Core Standards (CCSS) which are specifically listed under most of the activities on the Table of Contents pages.

When playing games, children learn a great deal concerning mathematical concepts and number relationships. Often they are required to use critical thinking skills as well as varied math strategies to solve them. Some of the domino activities in this resource will use games while the activities will extend, enhance, or introduce a new math concept. The activities and games vary in difficulty; so choose appropriately for your class. This resource is excellent for math center activities as well as for differentiated instruction. They also supplement the math series Everyday Math.

For these 13 activities and four games, you may use commercial sets of dominoes or copy the blackline which is provided in the resource. You should have at least one set of 28 dominoes for every two children. A domino blackline is provided in the handout.

The math activities include recognizing sets, place value of two and four digit numbers, creating domino worms, gathering data, using the commutative property, and practicing addition and subtraction facts. The games involve matching, finding sums, and using the greater than, less than, and equal signs.

Awesome resource! This will be excellent practice for my LD students who have trouble memorizing and conserving sets! I'm always looking for more material for this skill, and this set is perfect! Thanks!
I am always happy to know that my resources can be used with LD children. I try to differentiate the activities and games so it is useful and fun for every child. Thanks for rating it.

Wow! Wonderful! This is practically a book on the subject of using dominoes for math fact practice and exploration. This does accompany the Everyday Math program very nicely and in a much clearer and more child friendly way. Great teacher directions and information, also. Thanks so VERY much! Carolyn
YEAH!!! Everyday Math is my favorite series. When I supervised student teachers, those that used it loved it. I'm glad to know it works so well with the series.
