Thanks for stopping by!
There are 5 different varieties of domino addition activities included in this set:
• Domino Parking Lot
• Domino Parking Lot addition combinations
• Domino Addition sentences (you supply the dominoes)
• Domino Addition Hunt (recording addition equations to match given domino cards w/ vertical and horizontal options)
• Domino Addition worksheets (w/ vertical and horizontal options)
All activities within this set focus on understanding the part-part-whole relationship of dots found on dominoes. Students gain practice adding dots to find sums, decomposing wholes into different sets of parts, and recording addition sentences to match domino parts. You can choose vertical or horizontal equation formatting for you students, as well!
All pages should be printed on white cardstock for extra durability. Laminate the colored domino cards (pages 7-14) and cut along the dotted lines. All other pages can be laminated, though I use plastic sheet protectors to make reusing these pages during center time a breeze! You will need to supply regular dominoes for the parking lot and equation recording activities.
Domino Addition Sentences (pages 3-4):
Give students dominoes to use. Students choose a domino, place it on the work mat, and write an equation to match (a domino with 3 dots and 5 dots would be written as 3 + 5 = 8).
Parking Lot and Parking Lot Recording Sheet (pages 5-6):
Give students dominoes to use. Students choose a domino, count the dots, and “park” it in the correct parking space. To increase difficulty, have students use the Parking Lot Recording Sheet to write the combinations used for each parking space (5 is 2+3, 1+4, 0+5).
Domino Addition Hunt (pages 7-18):
Give students printed domino cards and work mats. Students select a card, match it to the correct work mat (all cards are coded with an upper- or lowercase letter), and use it to write and solve an addition equation. All equations are formatted with a domino template and come in horizontal and vertical varieties.
Domino Addition Worksheets (pages 19-25):
Give students work mat to use. Students look at a domino on the worksheet, write its parts down in the equation, and solve for the sum. There are all possible combinations of numbers found on a standard set of dominoes included from 0-12. Dominoes and equations are formatted in both vertical and horizontal options.
Have fun adding those domino dots! My kindergarteners love it. ☺
