Fish Addition A Fun Card Game to Reinforce Math Addition Facts Sums to 12
Simply, Print, Laminate, Cut and Play
I am a firm believer that students cannot practice addition and subtraction facts too much. These facts need to be reinforced on a daily basis so students can be successful with math in the upper grades and throughout life. Fact sheets are great, but it is also important for primary grade children to play games to reinforce math facts. For this reason, some of my colleagues and I always had “Math Stations or Rotations” every Friday for about an hour in the afternoon. Students rotated through 4 15 minute stations with a flexible differentiated group of students to work on skills with which they needed to reinforce.
Math facts were always included because you can’t stress them enough, but other skills were determined through observation of students while working on math or results of math assessments. We made note of which students needed reinforcement of various skills and used the games, worksheets and activities from the math program and some that we found on websites etc. The Friday Rotation games were then placed in baskets on the “Math Shelf” for use during Quiet Time, Free Choice Time or anytime a student was finished all their have to work during math.
