Addition & Subtraction
Students grab their stack of dominoes, draw the dominoes, and write the addition or subtraction number sentences.
These activities include both vertical and horizontal layout so students are exposed to both formats.
Odds and Evens
Students draw dominoes from their stack, draw the picture, determine the total, and then decide if the total is odd or even.
Students draw two dominoes from their stack. They draw the pictures, determine the totals, and then write >, <, or = to make a true number sentence. To save time, students can just leave the dominoes in place. If your students struggle to remember which way the greater than/less than symbols face, be sure to show them this strategy.
This activity helps students practice the relationship between addition and subtraction. Students draw a domino and then write the addition and subtraction number sentences to show the family. For my top kids, I make sure I toss in the dominoes with a zero on one side and the doubles facts because inevitably, they really have to slow down and think about the subtraction facts with these ones!
This activity focuses on ordering numbers from largest to smallest. Students select dominoes from their pile. After drawing the pictures and determining the total of each domino, students put them in order.
Domino Activity Practice Pages
There are also two types of practice pages (8 pages total). On the True or False pages, students help determine if the math has been done correctly.
On the What’s Missing pages, students must find the missing addend to make a true number sentence.
I have included four different versions of each. You can use them for a pre/post assessment, as daily practice, or to ensure students are doing their own work and not using their neighbor’s brain.
