This game is so funny to see how excited the kids get. All they have to do is roll 2 dice and cross out the sum. They keep going until they have crossed out all of the numbers. They learn the hard way how hard it is to roll a 2 or a 12! Printable
I decided to make some anchor charts for addition and subtraction key words. I got the idea from Jodi at Fun in First (she has really great ideas... if you haven't checked out her blog, you NEED to). Here is the addition chart (I love how it is shaped like an addition sign): After downloading both documents, print on card stock, arrange nicely on addition/subtraction shaped posters, and laminate.
BUILD = daily 5 for math - love this idea, now just to figure out how to tweak it for early childhood special ed preschool. they only have 2 1/2 hrs a day so that doesn't leave us much time for a good block of math (or any other!) exploration
my favorite addition math stations. This one is called "in and out". The students simply drop a handful of cubes onto the in and out board. They record the number in the circle for the first addend and the cubes outside of the circle as the 2nd addend. Then solve the number sentence. The kids really like it!
