Sometimes, the best activities are the most simple! This dice addition and subtraction game is a fun way to scaffold students' math skills. Students roll dice and write down the numbers, then find the sum or difference. Ample space is provided for students to check their work with a second strategy or draw a strip diagram.
This EDITABLE file includes three digit, two digit, and one digit pages. Your students will love playing together, and you'll love how they build number sense as they ensure their "top number" is bigger than their "bottom number."
My third graders adored this math center game and begged to keep going. I loved seeing them begin to make connections between the standard algorithm and other strategies they knew.
