DIY Addition Game | Crafts for Kids | PBS Parents | Addition | Scoop.it
Make math more fun with this easy-to-make, frugal game! You can make it more difficult for older children by using higher numbers or doing speed rounds.

Rebecca Siegel's insight:

I love this awesome game!  Thanks to Maddy, I think this game would be an awesome part of math centers for students when learning addition.  The easy to make game would be great for partners to play during rotating centers once they have been taught how to properly use it.  With hands on games and engaging activities, students are more likely to learn and retain information such as addition facts.

Madeline Morgan's curator insight, November 11, 2013 9:47 PM

I plan to use this game/concept in my future classroom. This activity is such an excellent way to get students up and moving and also getting them to manipulate obejcts in order to visually see addition. The students can use different objects in order to add things together. They can see that they start with one number that goes through the tube into the basket and then when they place more manipulatives in the other tube it adds more manipulatives to the basket. Students can work in teams in order to count the total of the items in the basket and then write addition number sentences to display what they did. This acitivity is hands on and allows the students to see what addition is. For example, time and time again teachers are always just telling students that addition is when we add things together and get a bigger number. Simply saying this to a student is not going to teach them what addition is. Doing an activity like the one above where the students are physically using manipulatives and actually seeing the addition take place is what they need in order to fully understand. For most students seeing an addition number sentence written on paper is NOT enough. They need to understand what 5 + 5 = 10 really looks like, not just what it looks like written as an addition number sentence. In my future classroom I want to incorporate whole class activities like this one and individual class activities that allow students to be hands on and really explore the topic at hand.

Rebecca Siegel's insight:

I love this idea!  It is something I can give students at a center or send home with them to practice their skills.  Although this is not very interactive, it is a great way to give students a chance to have individual practice.

Math Coach's Corner: Practicing +10 and -10

Math Coach's Corner: Practicing +10 and -10 | Addition | Scoop.it
Grab this easy little math game for practicing 10 more and 10 less.
Rebecca Siegel's insight:

This blog has great ideas for teaching math!  This particular post has great ideas for +10 and -10.  This is a skill that some students struggle with, and therefore, the more interactive activities I can find, the better!  This game can even be a center in my future classroom once the skill is initially introduced.

Rebecca Siegel's insight:

Here is another great game or activity that can be used at centers for students to practice addition skills.  They can play by themselves or with a partner.  Not only will they be practicing addition, they have a chance to practice using number cubes (dice).

Rebecca Siegel's insight:

This whole page has great ideas for different beginning math skills.  My personal favorite that I can't wait to use is the part-part-whole plate math.  With counters or another manipulative, the activity has students visually see the separation of part and part making the whole.

Rebecca Siegel's insight:

This is an awesome and easy to make game that engages students in addition facts.  I love how you can make it easier or harder based on student levels by using colord popsicle sticks.  This can also be modified for other math skills such as subtraction, multiplication, division, etc.
