This Ten-Penny Part-Part-Whole Fact Families activity is great for math centers, sorting, matching, related facts, missing addends, even money... all practice dealing with facts to ten!
Copy the pages on card stock, (page 3 and 19 can be used consumably on regular paper), cut out pages 4-18 by the dotted lines, and laminate for durability. **Teacher can limit the number of cards in the game depending on the number focus. Example: if the focus is “number 9” then just have the parts that will make a 9, and start them with the 9 penny “whole.” As a math center activity 2-6 Players can play: Shuffle the “Whole” cards (one of each focus number 10-penny, 9-penny, etc.) and the “Part” cards and put each type in piles face down in the center of the work space. First player takes a “Whole” card and places it on the (common) Work Mat. Player to his right takes a “Part” card. If it can be part of the whole, he puts it down on a “Part” of the Work Mat. Next player takes a “Part” card and can only put it down if it is a fact in that family. If a player can’t put his card down, he keeps it. When a player completes a fact family, he takes all three cards off the board, and places a new “whole” card down on the mat. The game continues in the same fashion until all the cards have been taken from the piles. The player who collected the most facts wins!
The fact family cards can be used as flash cards, or teacher can put them out for students to use when they build the family’s part-part-whole, and write them down on their accountability sheet. All pieces can be used as a sorting activity, individually or cooperatively in pairs, or center work!
