Addition Facts - Snow Globe Freebie!

Even though it isn't Thanksgiving yet, I know a lot of you busy little elves are already making your plans for December! Here's something that will happily be in your math centers from now until Valentines Day!

Dominoes are an amazing manipulative for math facts. Each one is a visual representation of a math fact!

Your students will use dominoes in this file folder game to make and solve addition and subtraction number models. Add the two sets of dots to find the sum, or subtract them to find the difference.  This center takes it a step further, as your students will then sort the sums and differences onto odd and even snowglobes.

Need an accountability piece? Your students can write 4 even models and 4 odd models on the recording sheet that's also included.

Because... who doesn't love a snow globe, right? ;)

Happy Teaching!
