I originally designed these cards to add into my daily whole group calendar routine. Each day we would look at a new fact family and students would match the addition card to the sum card. Placed into a pocket chart the cards make a great reference or “addition fact” wall. You can also mix up the sums and have students look for the mistake. I also include this activity in my math center rotation and they have quickly become a student favorite. Students can work on matching the cards independently, in partner pairs or small groups. They can match at their desks, on the carpet or in a pocket chart. The cards are a great quick assessment of student understanding as well. For kinesthetic learners you can give some students an addition card and some a sum card and have them move through the room looking for their match. When used as a math pocket chart center, the extension activities work well for student accountability as well as for an assessment. The worksheets are also great to send home activity.
With this download, there is a matching pair of cards for each single digit addition equation with sums to 20. There are 10 sets of matching cards, each with 11 pairs of cards.I have also included a blank card with each set to use to replace lost or damaged cards. In total there are 122 equations and their sums for students to match. Each fact family is color coded for easy storage and organization. I have also included one matching set for each of the designs as a replacement card for lost or damaged cards. In addition to the matching cards, there are also extension worksheets included in this download. There is one cut and paste worksheet for each of the 10 fact families included, ten worksheets in total. There is also one roll, add, and color worksheet and two fast fact worksheets.
I recommend printing the addition matching cards and the sum cards onto heavy cardstock and laminating them for durability. Once laminated, cut out each addition equation card and its respective sum. The addition cards have been color coded for easy storage and organization.
