Imagine a construction worker who showed up with 20 hammers yet no screw drivers, wrenches, pliers or other tools. We would be outraged. Yet often we try to teach our children math using only one tool or strategy and get frustrated when majority cannot understand more difficult concepts. We have given them 20 hammers but no screw driver. This simple game puts one more tool in your students' tool box by helping to understand how to use basic place value to their advantage. Students will learn how to quickly add by making ten out of a string of numbers. The conceptual knowledge of place value gained with increase your children's ability to do mental math, quick calculations and determine if an answer is reasonable or a recheck is needed.
As pictured in the preview, students choose an equation and find numbers that add to ten. Using a dry erase marker they draw dots on the empty dominoes, visually reinforcing the learning. They then add the tens and remaining dots to solve for the sum. This is an engaging center for kindergartners and first graders who need extra practice or a home activities to teach to home schoolers or extend school concepts.
