Product Description
The properties of addition are essential and really increase a kiddo's number sense! This resource is a great activity to play to see if students truly understand the Commutative, Associative, and Identity properties of addition! For more advanced students who are learning multiplication, the Distributive property is also an optional part of this resource! Students will sort equations into the property that it follows allowing you to quickly be able to determine if a student understands what these properties mean.

There are 2 versions of the recording sheet to choose from. In one version, students will sort the equations for the Commutative, Associative, & Identity properties only (2nd graders may not have learned about the Distributive property yet). In the other, they will sort all 4 types of equations! The equation cards were created for ease of use. All of the cards that show the Distributive property are at the bottom so they may be easily separated if not needed.

This resource is a life-saver for busy teachers who would like an easy, engaging activity for practicing the properties of addition! All materials are provided and printable!

This resource includes:
~ Instructions
~ List of materials needed
~ 2 Versions of the activity recording sheet
~ Place mats of varying sizes to use while sorting
~ Equation cards

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Directions:
Students place the equation cards face down in a pile. They take turns choosing an equation card and everybody works together to identify which rule was followed. The equation can be placed on the appropriate place mat. All members of the group record the equation on their recording sheets to identify which property of addition was followed.
