Just Another Mathy Monday!!

I will be dedicating Mondays to Math.  That is my love and focus as a math intervention specialist anyway.  So welcome to another Mathy Monday.  I hope you are able to get some ideas for your classroom and share some ideas that I can use as well.

Using Games to Help Students Meet the Common Core Fluency Standards for Addition and Subtraction

The new Common Core Standards for Mathematics have clearly defined the level of fact fluency needed for success at each grade level.Daily targeted practice is required in order to develop fluency. Games are one way to engage students in meaningful practice without worksheets or drill and kill.

I have compiled a list of skills and ways to adapt board games to practices those skills at my TpT store.  Included in this new product are recording sheets to use with board games, number sentence mats, number bond mats, part/part/whole mat and an original game boards that can be used with any skill.  

Game On @ TpT

Addition and Subtraction Fluency Standards from the Common Core

K.OA.5 Fluently add and subtract within 5.

1.0A.6  Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10

2.0A.2  Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies.2 By end of Grade 2, know from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers.

2.NBT.2 Fluently add and subtract within 100 using strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.

There are endless ways to adapt games to meet the needs of your
students.  The key is to know the skills that your students need to
develop and be intentional in your approach and use of games.

Please share your success with using games in your math classroom!
