This is a teacher and student favorite and a MUST have for any primary math center.
Students flip dominoes, add both ends and then depending on the game board they are using, they perform the operation: adding on or subtracting from the number on their domino.
Students actively practice their predicting skills as they try to GUESS what they think their answer will be.
This is a very "hands-on" numeracy activity that moves students through the stages of concrete to symbolic representation of number.
Students love the colorful game boards and matching score boards and there is enough variety and levels of difficulty to last the whole year. Children can MAKE their domino numbers with a manipulative of your choice, i.e. counters that are readily available in your classroom, and they are ready to play!
You and your "Little Geniuses" will absolutely love this activity, as it motivates and engages young learners to learn all about adding and subtracting in a fun way.
There are black-line masters for each game board,which is perfect for "home-work/home-play" extentions. These are also a great addition to any math or game journal.
