Addition Number Sentence or Fast Facts Sort
Increase their fluency!
These activities are amazing for helping students start to think of the strategies they know before resorting to their fingers! They also help them start recognizing patterns in some of these common strategies.
These can be used as a whole class, with a partner or as an independent practice.
I have included 3 different possible tables for sorting based on what strategies you are focusing on.
1. Sort by combinations of ten, doubles and other facts.
2. Sort by doubles, doubles + 1, or other.
3. A combination of all the strategies- Sort by combinations of ten, doubles, doubles +1 and other.
I have also included 2 different ways for obtaining the numbers 0-10:
-A sheet with small number cards. You could copy and quickly cut these up or have your students do it. Save them in a little baggie or cup to be used again.
-2 spinners that students could use with a pencil and paper clip, or you could also laminate them and spin with a paper clip around a brad.
Hope these are helpful. I feel like this activity made a HUGE difference in my students fluency last year!
