This terrific addition with re-grouping game uses dominoes in a unique way, with a fun twist!
Players predict the sum of two dominoes (set as numbers in place-value), after their opponent has "secretly" set-up and created a domino two-digit addition equation/puzzle for them to solve.
This "hands-on" place-value game is very engaging, as the element of making predictions and guessing the actual sum is key.
Secret Sums is a wonderful game for children to practice their critical thinking skills as they learn how to create problems for others to solve.
This interactive activity can be played at any math center or as a whole class activity.
Pair up your students and have them play as a partner team against another partner team and listen to the awesome "math talk", as they problem solve and make decisions together.
This is an excellent game to play with cross-graded buddies or to send home as the "Game of The Week".
Your "Little Geniuses" will LOVE this game!
