Gingerbread Houses Fact Family Practice contains Christmas-Themed fact family practice activities. Fact families provide students with a great strategy for quickly solving addition and subtraction facts.
I Have, Who Has This is a whole class game. Pass out all of the cards. The person who has the first card reads the question at the bottom. Students listen and if they have the matching fact, they read their card. Play continues until one student asks, “Who has the first card”. The game is over when the first player reads, “I have the first card.” This activity requires children to think and respond quickly. Challenge your class to improve their time each round. (I keep their current time up on the board so we know what we are trying to beat. )
Fact Family Cards Students use number tiles to complete fact families. They document their work with a printable recording sheet. For best results, print the cards and number tiles on card stock. Cut out and laminate.
Fact Family “Gin”gerbread Card Game Students must collect all 4 cards in a particular fact family. There are fact families for sums 6-17. Differentiate by selecting the fact families you would like specific students to practice. To play, deal each student 5 cards. Students try to collect all 4 cards in one family by drawing and discarding from the deck. To win, a student must have all 4 cards and discard the left over. For best results, print the cards on card stock. Cut out and laminate.
Fact Family Practice There are two printable practice pages with fact families ready to be completed. There is also a blank printable where students can write in any fact families you want them to review.
**Money-Saving Hint: I take my color copies that I want printed on card stock to a local office supply store. They print the pages on nice card stock. It costs 46¢ per page with a teacher discount. I have found that is cheaper than using the ink in my printer.
