I wanted to make something fun that centered around my favorite food- DONUTS! To add to the fun, I wanted to add one of my favorite characters the "Old Lady"! I created a set of "Roll, Add, and Cover" Games centered around the "Old Lady" that swallowed some donuts! This packet includes "Roll, Add, & Cover" games, "Roll, Add, and Color" printables, recording sheets, and extension worksheets. The skills include adding 2 numbers, doubles, and adding 3 numbers. Click here to see the pack.
If you are trying to save ink, you can use the "Roll, Add, and Color" games. These are just as much fun, especially if you use Bingo dabbers. It is exactly the same concept, except students are coloring the sum, instead of covering it. Below, is an example of adding 3 numbers.
Pick up a Free Sample of the "Roll, Add, & Color" games here. I would love to hear what you think of it!!
I'm also sharing a Free: Donut Missing Addend game. Missing addends is a difficult concept for so many kids. I try to use a number of hands on activities to try and help some of my students grasp the concept. This center focuses on finding the missing addends for 10. There are donut mats 0+_=10 to 10+_=10, donut manipulatives, and a recording sheet. I have some students who are able to use the donut manipulatives to find the answer. They are able to "count on" from the first number. Other students needed help from a magnetic ten frame with double sided counters. You can get a free template here. Students would build the first number on the ten frame and see how many spaces are left.You can find detailed instructions on building the hanger manipulative here.
I attached the hanger to the back of a chair by using a hair band and a clothespin. Simple, but it worked!
I love class number lines. I love how students are able to really interact with the numbers, by walking forward and backward on the number line. Students are also able to visually and physically feel the different amount of space between two numbers. Fore example, students can try jumping from number 1 to 2. It is an easy hop. Then, have them try to hop from 1 to 10. This is a great, concrete way to see the differences in spaces between numbers. You can use any thing to make your number line: construction paper, foam shapes, ANYTHING!!
