These "Adding with Dice" practice cards help students build addition fluency. Students will also increase their ability to subitize. Subitizing is the ability to "see" a small amount of objects and know how many there are without counting. You can use these for enrichment math groups, center activities, gallery walks, playing games like scoot, or supplementing any calendar math you may use.
I created these to supplement my calendar math program. There are a total of 30 color cards. I recommend you print the colored cards on cardstock and laminate the sheets. Once they have been laminated, cut the cards in the center. You can use a dry erase marker to write on the laminated cards. This allows students to continually practice a skill once a day, even after you’ve moved on to another standard.
Also included are:
- 3 practice worksheets with pictures of dice
- 6 practice worksheets blank. (Students roll their own dice and fill
in the patterns before creating addition sentences)
- 1 Race to the Top Game (Students roll 2 dice and write the
equation above the sum. Game ends when one of the Sum
columns reaches the top)
- 1 Addition Connect 3 (players roll 2 dice and find their numbers on
the addition chart. Students color in the sum and write the
equation used on their side of the paper. Student that connects 3
sums in a row wins)
- 1 Blank Addition Connect 3
- 2 Math Communication Guides to help students learn to write about their learning
