### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Determining which addition skills and strategies individual students were missing was always a time-consuming task for me, yet I kept finding myself grading and carefully examining timed tests. I knew that there had to be a better way that would lighten my work load and motivate my students. “Dinosaur Dash” was the perfect solution for me. EVERY student in my class excitedly dashed around our classroom to complete 26 addition task cards. Once they’d finished, I was able to easily score their recording pages and see which columns contained numerous errors. This 20-30 minute activity took me just minutes to grade and helped me to form strategy groups with ease.

“Dino-mite Equations” is an engaging way to provide students with practice in sorting equations. This game contains 16 equation cards that students will classify as true or false and record on the student page. My students typically see addition equations with the addends on the left side of the equal sign and the sum on the right side, so this was the perfect opportunity to help them see that the position of the addends and the sum doesn’t matter as long as both sides are equal.

This set also contains a set of 12 missing addend poke cards. If you’ve never heard of poke cards, check out the product images for a sneak peak. I’ve included detailed instructions explaining how to create this self-checking game. Your students will love it!
