Product Description
This Choosing the Operation Sorting Game will help build literacy in your math class and give your students practice at deciding between addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division without having to actually solve the problems.

Teacher Testimonial
"My students know how to multiply and how to divide with fluency, they just don't know WHEN to use each operation! They are excellent at solving word problems when we are working on one specific operation but when all operations are mixed together, it's a disaster!"

I've spent a decade coaching math teachers and I hear the same story again and again. My students never know when to use which operation. The best solution I've found is to teach this a skill separate from the algorithm. Knowing how to multiply and knowing when to multiply are two very different things. This game removes the "solve" part of the equation and has students just practice choosing the operation again and again and again until they master it. Practice makes perfect!

This product includes:
⇒10 Game Mats
⇒10 decks of 8 Word Problem Cards (80 unique problems)
⇒Teacher Guide with easy-to-follow instructions

Save money and get the Choosing the Operation for Whole Numbers, Decimals, and Fractions 30 Game Bundle!

For the first five games, students choose between two commonly mixed up operations such as Addition vs. Subtraction, Addition vs. Multiplication, or Multiplication vs. Division. In the last five games, students choose between all four basic operations.

This game can be used whole group, as a math center, or as a challenge activity for early finishers.

The game is designed for 4th- 5th grade, but could also be used in 6th- 8th grade for students who struggle with word problems or as an extension activity for 3rd grade.
