This simple but effective activity is designed to improve mental math, critical thinking skills and fact fluency with all operations. This Freebie Version includes 52 expressions with answers from 0 to 12, and a set of equal sign cards.
Each expression was chosen to reinforce foundational concepts such as doubling and halving, ten more and ten less, and powers of ten. Expressions are organized in numerical order, and the original can be used as an answer key. Students find the expressions equaling the same amount, link with equal signs, or group them together.
Differentiate as needed with your students. Work with specific operations for remediation and targeted instruction or include all four operations for a greater challenge.
Copy on cardstock and cut apart. For more durability and ease of use, laminate, mount on foam sheets, and/or add magnetic backing.
I have had success using this in small groups of 2 to 4 students of various ability levels. I hope it benefits your students as much as it has mine! Thank you for visiting Small Group Specialties! Please take time to provide feedback on this resource and earn TPT credits toward your next purchase.
