We've got a little ice cream theme going on because I've sort of promised my students an ice cream party next week. If you saw my post last week you know that we have been working on choosing between addition and subtraction. My students are getting better and enjoyed the strawberry math station, but it was time for a new one. So, here's what I came up with...
Students roll 2 dice then decide if they want to add or subtract the two numbers to get a number. Then they cover the number on their card and take turns with their partner. As you can see, I have included 3 "I can..." cards. One is in color and the other 2 are black and white. I LOVE using colored pages, but the option to print in black and white is nice too especially on colored paper :). Why 2 black and white "I can.." cards you ask? I added one to give the option to color the ice cream scoop rather than cover.
I'm using both this color and black and white this week. I've got a class set of black and white ones copied to introduce the game and play in small groups as a whole class and a colored version in a math station drawer.
Now for a little freebie...
I thought I would use this as a little assessment page. Who knows maybe I'll need to change a comment or two on those report cards. Let's hope not!!!!
You can pick up a free copy by clicking on the picture. Enjoy!
If you're like me, you LOVE freebies. You can find many more by heading over to Manic Monday.
If you are working on this skill and would like a copy it is available in my TPT store.
As usual, I'll send a copy to the first two followers who comment on this post. Don't forget your email :)
