Use up to Double Ten Dominoes. Flip all the dominoes face down. Students flip over one domino or two dominoes, depending on the maximum number feature on each set of dominoes.
Students can play individually, in pairs, or as a small group sharing a set of dominoes. The more students in a group, the more numbers a student will see. Be sure to ask students to share their sheets with one another so work can be checked by peers.
In the “Flip It” column, draw a picture of what the domino face looks like. In the “Write It” column, give the number in numerical/standard form. Use the “Tally It” column to showcase the number as tally marks. The “Show It” column is used to demonstrate the flipped number in ten frames.
Students can compete against one another (or against the teacher at the classroom projection system) to see who can get the highest total in their flips.
Make multiple copies, or print back-to-back, of this sheet to extend the activity.
Print on cardstock paper and laminate to use as an extension activity, use at a center, or to send home for a family activity.
This activity is easily differentiated based on ability by limiting or extending the number of dominoes a particular student uses.
Encourage each student to do each row in a different color to inspire engagement.
If children are struggling with physically handwriting/drawing this activity, stamps, stickers, and cut-outs work well too. Stickers can be made by you or another adult through the use of opaque (painter's, masking) tape, pricing dots, or blank address labels.
