My Addition Properties Sorting Cards allow you to formatively or summatively assess the addition properties understanding of your students.
This cut, sort and paste activity is engaging and wonderful when done with partners, but may also be a good individual work activity or a center activity. Using it as an interactive journal entry would be another great use of this resource!
I love for my students to work with partner to sort each set of cards after I've taught them about the properties of addition. The students work through each set of card options as they are successful with each previous set. Here are the options:
A: This set includes basic number sentences that model the identity, commutative and associative properties of addition. The students simply sort them into the correct property category.
B: This set includes basic number sentences; however, I have removed on number from each number sentence to add more difficulty. The students need to first figure out which property is being demonstrated and then they must fill in the missing number to correctly complete the number sentence.
C: This set includes symbols instead of numbers that model the three properties of addition. The students simply sort them into the correct property category.
D: This is the most challenging set of cards. This set includes symbols instead of number and some have been removed. The students must identify which property is being demonstrated and then must fill in the missing symbol to correctly complete the number sentence.
I love to have my students mount their finished products on construction paper and hang them throughout the room. They find this activity engaging, challenging, and fun!
