That means without fingers, maniputives, or number lines.

For some children being able to add and subtract within five fluently is easy. Numbers come easy to them, they have a good memory, or numbers just make sense.  For others, though they understand the concept of adding and subtracting, being able to quickly answer simple problems without support requires more work.

This is where games come in. It allows children to repeatedly practice their facts in a fun, non pressure setting.

Prep work

  • First, print pages back to back on card stock paper– if your printer does not do that, print off expressions first then flip paper and print off the backgrounds.
  • Next, cut out cards using the front. I made the background a little bigger. This way when you cut it out in the front everything will line up perfectly.
  • Finally, gather up game pieces and you will be ready to go.
