Two options included - one to practice facts through 20 and the other with facts through 12 to allow for differentiation. In this math game students roll two dice (or roll one twice) or use a number spinner twice and find the sum to get a number - example if you roll a 2 and 6 your number is 8. With their number students then see how many numbers they can cover up! This game is great for practicing both addition and subtraction facts since they can cover up the numbers in a variety of ways. Such as cover the sum, cover two numbers that create the same sum, or cover two numbers that you can subtract and find a difference that’s the same number.
Example: If the sum of your dice roll is 8 - Option one cover 8. Option two cover 2 and 6, or 5 and 3 (5+3=8) etc. anything that equals 8. Option three cover 12 and 4 since 12-4=8.
There are also several variations on the game with playing alone or with a partner, 4 in a row, cover a column, cover the whole game board etc.
My students love this game!
*This game is also really great if you purchase 10-sided polyhedral dice (numbers 0-9) for a wider array of numbers!
