These mats can be used in a variety of ways! You can laminate them or place them in a page protector and use for centers, small group work, or even whole group. If using for centers or small group provide students with 2-3 dice and let them roll their numbers. If using for whole group, give students the numbers they will use.
This set includes 3 mats for each of the addition properties: Commutative, Associative, and Identity. Each mat describes the property being used. I give my students alternative names for these properties to try to help them remember so each mat also includes a hint and picture representation of the property. The hints are as follows: Commutative Property-Flip Flop Rule (Numbers can be flip flopped around); Associative Property-Buddy Rule (Numbers can buddy up in different ways); Identity Property-Me Rule (The answer is that number’s name).
