Today I was the guest blogger for Debbie Clement’s Pre K and K Sharing Blog, as I am on the 14th of each month. The full guest post is available on the blog, along with a free 50 page PDF with math activities. I post a free PDF on Debbie’s site each month.
This book, Domino Addition, has large dominoes and huge numbers on a page so it is suitable for preschool through grade one. It is somewhat interactive for children as they point to answers or solve problems on the pages. For parents, though, there is an easy trick to know what the answers are as they are cleverly included in a number in the corner made of dominoes. The dominoes are in the shape of a number, and the ones that are a color (not black) show the answers. Children may not notice right away so they will have to think, at least at first, until they catch on.
To accompany this book, I made a dice addition PDF based on two common core standards for grade one in the operations and algebraic thinking strand. Happy reading and math, Carolyn
