This sports themed resource includes a variety of games and activities designed to reinforce basic addition fact strategies with first and second graders. These are a perfect complement to my other addition fact strategy resources. All the games and activities are provided either in both color and black/ gray/ white or just black/ white. Some are designed for individual use; others for working with a partner or small group. Puzzles, Three in a Row, Color the Sum, and Can I Use This Strategy focus on applying a single strategy. Roam the Room, Spin a Strategy, and Find, Color, Tally, and Graph all require discriminating between a selection of strategies and applying them. Each game and activity includes a number of pages to address all 9 strategies; Add Zero, Count Up, Doubles, Make 10, Doubles + 1, Add 10, The 9 Rule, The 8 Rule, and Monkey in the Middle. Spinners (included), cards (included), and dice (0-9 and 1-10) are used. Dice are not a requirement. I have included some duplicate pages to give you options (dice or cards) for both personal preference and variety. Recording sheets are included. For most activities, these are optional. Dry erase boards could be used instead. Check out a FREE SAMPLE before purchasing!
