Math Doubles Plus One Fact Activities Fun is differentiated
and has 3 different math levels
for your use. This is best as a partner game but can be used with a small group.
Each child will need their own card and tokens to cover their answers
; such as, pennies, teddies, cubes of whatever you have around the room. If you laminate the cards, which is suggested, you can have the children use wipe off markers and crayons to X their answer.
Run off enough cards for the number of students playing the game and laminate. Each partnership or group needs one die.
Directions for Use:
♥ The first card has only numbers or sums, which is the easiest level. Since the student just has to add the numbers together and cover the sum.
♥ The student will roll the die, double the number, add 1 and then cover the answer.For example. The child rolls a 6 (You may provide a manipulative, such as a number line or grid to support learners).
♥ The second card has the number model.
♥ With this activity the students roll the die and cover the equation or number model that shows a doubles plus one fact. For example
if the student rolls a 3, then they would cover the number model 3+4 or 4+3. This requires a bit more higher order thinking.
♥ The third card has harder number models and would need to be used with a polyhedral dice that goes up to 12.
♥ The fourth card is blank so you can differentiate however you choose. You may even want the children to write the facts or sums that might go with different dice. For example
if you are using a polyhedral die that goes up to 12, then the sums could go up to 25. It is yours to create whatever works for your class. It can even be a wipe off if laminated.
♥ The last worksheet is to check the student’s metacognitive thinking which is so important with state tests. Having children explain their thinking helps the teacher see how the student’s mind works. It is almost like a video camera and you can see where the breakdowns are or just how they are thinking and support as needed. Some children may need to do this verbally.
♥ I have also asked for the Name, date and time on the bottom of this sheet. I have experienced that many children have difficulty reading an analogue clock so this provides ongoing practice with writing a telling time from an analogue clock.
Please note: The cards are the same because the dice determines the outcome. You will need to run off enough copies of each for your students.
