Keeping Math Fun and Simple with Dominos! (Freebie included)

We have been working on simple addition a lot and I wanted to incorporate some fun, hands-on ways to make math more interactive and exciting.  The other day we played a VERY simple but EFFECTIVE addition game with dominos.

We began by folding a piece of paper into 8 squares so we could practice 16 addition problems.  We placed all of the dominos face down and mixed them up.


Player #1 begins by picking a domino and writing an addition sentence with the numbers.  Player #2 does the same and the person with the highest number wins a point.
In no time at all, we practiced 16 math facts.... and then she wanted to do it AGAIN!

When math becomes a game...that is learning at its BEST!  
Simple...FUN...Effective!
Be sure to pick up this Fall Math Pack FREEBIE, which includes some domino addition and more!
