This resource provides fun and exciting Cinco de Mayo themed math centers for learners to practice addition facts to 10. This resource takes the popular Add the Room activity to another level. Learners use dice graphics to determine the addition equation represented by the number of dots on the dice.
This packet has 5 sets of Dice Add the Room cards. Each set has 10 cards. There is a recording page for each set of cards. The cards and recording pages have matching graphics. The graphics include kids with sombreros, tacos, chili peppers, maracas, guitars, and chips with salsa.
Print, laminate, and cut out the equation cards. Make copies of the recording pages.
Hang the cards in places all around the room. Give each student a clipboard, pencil, and recording page. Learners search the room for cards with dice graphics. When they find a card, they write the equation and sum represented by the number of dots on the dice in the correct space on the recording sheet.
For example, if a card has a die on the left side with 5 dots and a die on the right side with 2 dots, learners write 5 + 2 = 7 in the correct space on the recording sheet.
These activities help learners develop addition fluency and support the Math Common Core Standards for Operations and Algebraic Thinking.
Thank you for looking at this resource. I hope you and your learners enjoy these activities.
Have a fun time at the fiesta!
