Hup 2-3-4! Learn those facts 2-3-4! This activity will welcome your students into addition and subtraction boot camp in this classroom transformation in which they practice their math facts within 10 at the same time! This boot camp is perfect for first graders. When they complete all ten challenges aligning with 1.OA.6, they get to celebrate with a certificate of completion!
When many people think of classroom transformations, they think:
“This would take me hours to set up.”
“This is going to cost so much money.”
“This looks so overwhelming.”
“I could never do this!”
What if I told you classroom transformations could be EASY to set up, FUN to implement, and STRESS-FREE?
A room transformation changes your room into a certain setting or theme to engage students in their own learning with rigorous content.
Classroom transformations are possible in EVERY classroom. You don’t have to spend hours of your time setting up a classroom transformation or spend lots of money to make it SO MUCH FUN!
✔ Version #1: Addition Facts from 1-10 (Recite Math Facts)
✔ Version #2: Subtraction Facts from 1-10 (Recite Math Facts)

Help your 1st grade students become math experts in your classroom! Students complete addition or subtraction fact challenges that are engaging and fun.
Tell your class that they are at boot camp today! They will have to complete 10 challenges to finish boot camp!
Step 1: Students choose which fact they’d like to practice first and grab a practice paper.
Step 2: When a student comes up to you to be tested, you pull out the challenge paper and tell him he has 1 minute 30 seconds (however much time you choose) to recite all 12 facts on the paper! Students may try to recite their facts individually, with a partner, or with a group! Your choice!
Step 3: If the student recites all facts correctly, then you sign their recording sheet and they move onto another fact! They go and get another fact’s practice paper. If they recite all the 3 facts correct, you sign the +3 spot on their recording sheet!
Step 4: If the student does not recite the facts correctly, they get to complete an “Obstacle Card!” The kids have to do some sort of exercise before they can go practice their facts again and try to pass the challenge!
Step 5: If any 1st grade student finishes early, they can complete the early or fast finisher activity! Place the QR Codes around the room. Kids scan them and find out facts about the army that they may not have known before. They also get a certificate of completion!
There are 4 of each challenge included so kids can’t predict which fact is coming next when you’re quizzing them! This math activity is perfect for first graders. It aligns with 1.OA.6.

I also call these my Monday Funday math games if you've seen them on Instagram! These are easy to implement classroom transformations!
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).
With remote learning taking center stage in our communities, a digital version is now included! It's compatible with Google Slides™ and can be completed 100% digitally. That means no making copies and less prep for you!
First, invite your students into a video call on whatever learning platform your school district uses. Set the scene and tell your class online what themed day they will be completing.
Then, assign your students the Google Slides™ activities that come with this digital classroom transformation. Each digital classroom transformation is interactive and has movable pieces for students to enjoy playing with. Every activity can be modified for what works best in your classroom!
