Students love this fun activity that provides opportunities for practicing Mental Math, using missing addend scenarios!
You will use this PowerPoint many times with your students to help them sharpen number sense skills. This activity focuses on equations with sums of 11, 12, and 13.
This PowerPoint is inspired by the math fact card game, Salute! It is a great activity to prepare students for the actual card game, since it controls the variables that can lead students astray when playing partner card games.
The premise of the game is that students are presented with one card (face-up) and one mystery card (face down). When told the total sum of the two cards, students must determine the value of the mystery card.
Cheerful music and cute graphics ensure an engaging and fun educational experience for all students. Sound cues are present to maintain student attention to the learning activity.
Two different types of Student Response / Recording Sheets are provided in this package to ensure active participation and accountability.
A cute printed Instruction sheet for "Salute!” (the actual card game that inspired this activity) is provided. Tips for management of the activity, as well as suggestions for assisting math-challenged and advanced students are provided in the packet.
A detailed listing of the related CCSS is included, allowing teachers to cut and paste the standards into lesson plans and learning objective posters.
Ten coordinating worksheets (with keys) are provided for further practice at school or home. The practice sheets feature the same playing card design format that is seen in the PowerPoint. Besides being engaging and motivating, playing card models provide great opportunities to utilize subitizing skills. For students who need more concrete techniques for solving the paper/pencil task, the clubs, hearts, spades, and diamonds on the card graphics can be counted or crossed-off on the paper.
Each sheet is structured to include a specific calculation strategy, such as Make-A-Ten, Doubles and Near-Doubles, Fact Families, etc.
This is a great activity to leave for a Substitute Teacher since it is so guided and self-explanatory. The printed directions for the actual card game are easy to slip into your Substitute Folder.
The activity also works great for use with a Parent Helper.
