Kindergarten is a great time to introduce basic addition concepts to your students. Before beginning addition in your classroom, be sure your students have a solid understanding of number value and counting on. If you’re convinced your students are ready to learn beginning addition, there are quite a few simple ways to approach this teaching.
Addition Math Games
Learning through play is a valuable tool for students of any age. Students simply seem to be able to retain information quicker and for longer when they are engaged with their assigned activity. Try adding in a little extra fun by using Double Dice.
Double Dice Games
If you’ve never heard of double dice, they are exactly what they sound like; one die inside another die. The outer die is transparent so that you can see through it, to see the second die inside. Double dice add a little flair to your learning center games…there is something SO FUN about rolling a die inside a die.
Double Dice Addition BUMP!
We’ve designed two FREE Double Dice Addition games you can print and play with your students. Each game includes options for single or multiplayers.
Supplies: 1 double dice or 2 single dice. Building bricks or cubes (one color for each player).
Rules for 1-Player: Roll the dice. Add the two numbers and place a cube on the sum. Fill all the numbers and then begin again.
Rules for 2-Player: Roll the dice. Add the two numbers and place a cube on the sum. If that number has 1 cube, you can BUMP the other player off and place your own cube there. If that number has two cubes, you may not BUMP. It is the other player’s turn.
