These ocean themed math centers get your little learners up and engaged in practicing addition facts within 10. This resource takes the popular Add the Room activity to another level. Learners use a domino graphic to determine the addition equation represented by the number of dots on the domino.
This packet has 5 sets of domino Add the Room cards. Each set has 12 cards. There is a recording page for each set of cards. The cards and recording sheets have ocean animal graphics. The images include a whale, a crab, a sea turtle, an octopus, and a shark. These activities work well with ocean, beach, and summer themes.
Print, laminate, and cut out the domino cards. Make copies of the recording pages.
Hang the cards in places all around the room. Give each student a clipboard, pencil, and recording page. Learners search the room for cards with dominoes. When they find a card, they write the equation represented by the number of dots on the domino in the correct space on the recording sheet.
For example, if a card has a domino with 5 dots on the left side and 2 dots on the right side, learners write 5 + 2 = 7 in the correct space on the recording sheet.
These activities help learners develop addition fluency and support the Math Common Core Standards for Operations and Algebraic Thinking.
Thank you for looking at this resource. I hope you and your learners enjoy these activities.
