This resource is an addition fact fluency geared toward helping students add numbers efficiently and to use basic estimation skills. The game requires a game board, the included “target number” cards, and 4 dice. The purpose of this game is to get students to realize that you can add numbers in any order (the associative and commutative properties) and that they can make mental math easier by being strategic about which two numbers to add first. It also works to help students anchor to 10 and develop number sense.

Students roll the dice and use as many of the 4 dice as they need to get as close to the target number as possible. The closer they are, the more “tokens” they earn! This is one of my students’ FAVORITE games, and I have watched them become so much more fluent after playing it for some time!

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract. If 8 + 3 = 11 is known, then 3 + 8 = 11 is also known. (Commutative property of addition.) To add 2 + 6 + 4, the second two numbers can be added to make a ten, so 2 + 6 + 4 = 2 + 10 = 12. (Associative property of addition.)
Understand subtraction as an unknown-addend problem. For example, subtract 10 – 8 by finding the number that makes 10 when added to 8.
Relate counting to addition and subtraction (e.g., by counting on 2 to add 2).
Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 - 4 = 13 - 3 - 1 = 10 - 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 - 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13).
Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies. By end of Grade 2, know from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers.
