We all know that “Practice makes perfect”, but sometimes those worksheets get a bit tiresome. With that in mind, I wanted to create a wintry math activity that children would enjoy.
Dominic, the domino snowman, is a quick easy and fun math game with a variety of options that practice addition and subtraction.
I’ve also provided a simple work mat, for PK kiddos, so that they can practice rolling the dice, counting the dots, finding the matching dominoes, then tracing & writing those two numbers.
You can play the game with real dominoes (They sell them at The Dollar Store) or run off the paper dominoes provided, so each student has their own set. The PK paper dominoes, only have one number on them.
The game can be played as an entire class, by having children work in small groups or with a partner.
You can also set this up as an independent math center.
I’ve provided colorful math mats that you can print and laminate, as well as black & white versions in a large, as well as a smaller, 2-on-a-page size, so that children can color their own.
The recording sheets provide practice writing equations horizontally, while the math mats are vertical.
It’s important to practice both directions because standardized tests include both, and can otherwise be confusing to children.
Dominic makes an interesting homework activity, or something for your sub folder, or early finishers to do as well.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy practicing math skills with Dominic and dominoes.
