The FREE Dots Fun primary resource is a 10 page booklet containing three different activities and one game that uses dominoes for activities ranging from adding, to problem solving, to Topsy Turvy subtraction problems. Since the students do not write on the pages, they can be copied and laminated for use from year to year. Students solve the Dots Fun Activities by arranging dominoes. You may use a commercial set of 28 dominoes or copy the domino blackline that is included on the last page of this handout. Each activity is on a single page, and varies in difficulty. Since the students have the freedom to move the dominoes around, they are more engaged and more willing to attempt multiple methods to find the solution.
These activities are appropriate for the visual and/or kinesthetic learner. They are suitable for a math center, for differentiated instruction, as well as for introducing or reviewing a math concept. They correlate well with the math series, Everyday Math.
