Flip TEN-Fun addition card game from Guided Math! Kids line up cards in four rows of five. Then, they flip two cards over. If the sum of the two cards equals 10, they keep the cards and replace the cards with two more from the deck. The game ends when there are no more matches left. Great for the start of the year in ANY grade! Finding friendly numbers is a skill ALL kids need to practice!
Love this idea! What's the number? Kids ask questions like Is the number greater than/less than....? Is the number between ___ and ___? Is the number in the tens place ____? etc. No two questions in a row can make the same comparison. Or students may ask in number sentences- - Is the number 5+1?
Put math flash cards in a small photo album and students can answer the cards using a whiteboard marker. Great review! This is a first grade post, but just add multiplication or division flash cards and it works GREAT for third and fourth grade!
revolving math cups! Styrofoam cups are great for place value and greater than, less than, or equal to practice. Grab three styrofoam cups and write numbers 1-9 around the outer rim (opening facing left). Write one zero after each numeral for your tens cup and two following the numerals on your hundreds cup. Then, stack them! Kids can twist and turn the cups to create different numbers.
