This product can be used as a math center or simply as an activity to practice and reinforce confidence when adding 3 2-digit addends.
Students will select their cup of hot cocoa which will contain 3 marshmallow addends reading 2-digit numbers. Students will work to add together the 3 addends and can record the value of the cup of cocoa.
There are 10 cups included, 9 of which have the numbers already written on them and one which is blank. The blank cup leaves the teacher power to differentiate by choosing to work with single digit or even 3 digit numbers, as necessary. The students can also use the blank cup to create their own addends (dice or a deck of cards could be used to do so), allowing for endless number sentences to be created and solved!
I used this as a math center, with the cover page of the product as the envelope cover page (as it contains the directions), cut out each cup, and laminated them. My students used dry erase markers to record the values of each cup, and used dice to create 2-digit numbers on the blank cup.
In addition, this activity could become a double duty center by asking students to subtract rather than add the factors!
