These boards are designed to be used with dominoes (double zeros to double nines). They work great for small group addition review or as a math station game.
-Printed boards (laminated for reuse)
-Set of Double Zero to Double Nine Dominoes
Suggested Game Play:
1. Have students spread dominoes face down in center of playing area.
2. Each student picks one domino and finds the sum. The student with the lowest sum starts. All dominoes get returned to the pile for the start of the game.
3. First student chooses a domino and states the number sentence represented by the domino for example a double nine domino would be read as 9+9=18. The other students verify the answer is correct and then the student that drew the domino looks for the sum on their board. If they have the number free they mark it with a marking chip. If that number has already been marked off their turn is over. Play continues clockwise.
4. Winners can be determined several ways. Make sure that the winning way is clarified at the start of the game. Possibilities include: horizontal, vertical or diagonal lines, inside square, outside square, four corners or full table. Some of these methods might require dominoes to be reused after being drawn.
This download also includes a recording sheet. Students can record all of their drawn domino addition sentences on the additional page.
*Instead of laminating boards and using marking chips, the boards can also be printed on plain paper and spaces can be colored with crayons. If this method is used, and you are interested in using the recording sheets they could be printed together, front and back to conserve paper :)
