We are currently learning addition strategies in our My Math. We had two days of doubles and near doubles. I decided to throw in some fun with doubles centers to help supplement the My Math lesson. These help to engage the students and make learning math a favorite activity for my kiddos
(And please forgive me, I’m currently very low on color ink, so when I printed, it printed in grayscale… blah!!)
The students used a pencil and a paperclip to spin a doubles fact, then covered the sum with a colored token. It adds an element of gamification to the math lesson.
This game (and the game below) comes from my Dino Doubles center pack on TPT.
Fun with Doubles – Dino Doubles Center Pack
There are two options for this game, one for practice on skills and one for enrichment….
Students will lay all the facts and sums out and match up, or flip them all over face down and play Memory.
Students pulled out a doubles fact, then showed the doubles fact with red and yellow tokens, and they really enjoyed this facet.
My kids LOVE to play teacher. I gave them their whiteboard baggies, and then they played teacher with the person across from them. They had to give their partners a doubles fact, then write it out on their whiteboards. Do your students love playing the teacher?
This worksheet is printed and ready to go for ‘assessment’ tomorrow before we start our fun with doubles math lesson.
We also made two anchor charts for our classroom, but they were not as cute as the Pinterest ones that I got my inspiration from, so I’m going to go ahead and just show the Pinterest ones!!
