Make practicing core math standards doggone fun and meaningful for your students!

I created these addition and subtraction math games to give students an enjoyable way to practice fluency in addition and subtraction to 5 and to 10. They make the practice meaningful and students were more engaged in their learning and more motivated to play (practice their skills).

The games are easy to learn and set up for young students so you can use them anytime and anywhere - in math groups, in math tubs, during indoor recess, as a free choice option, as take home practice, in centers, etc.

You receive cards, games, equation boards, and SCOOT / center activities giving you a wide variety from which to choose to alleviate boredom and maintain interest.

All resources come in both full color and black and white versions.

Dog Math Cards for Addition & Subtraction to 10 – I created this special set of cards for several reasons:

• To have a set of cards with only numbers 0-5 enabling students to practice addition and subtraction to 10 fluency by adding or subtracting 2 cards.
• To have cards sized slightly larger than playing cards to enable young students to clearly see the images / numbers and easily handle the cards.
• To create interest in using the cards by using a cute dog theme making them more interesting and fun to my students than regular playing cards.

The cards have 4 “suits” (different dogs and colored paws) similar to regular playing cards.
