Week 1 – Addition and Subtraction
Updated: Apr 8
First, I would like to ask students to do this work on their own then send it to me. You do not need to print this page. That maybe difficult. I encourage students to look at the numbers and write them down on a lined paged and do the work. I would like to see the questions written and not just the answer. Show me the work or thinking you do if you like by drawing pictures or dots or whatever it takes for you to solve each question. Only do as much as you can because some of you may not have done all of this in math yet.
The purpose is for me to see where each student is at in their adding and subtracting. I can then support you with moving to the next step! If you can do all of this on your own then we move on.
When you are done this take a picture or scan the page and send it to me. Then scroll below and play the game! (Maybe take a break first. That was a lot of work. 😊)
3 6 8 13
+ 5 + 5 + 7 + 4
32 24 41 57
+ 9 + 10 + 25 + 37
+ 54 + 73
7 9 13 19
- 4 - 9 - 2 - 7
15 26 35 86
- 8 - 16 - 17 - 59
- 40 - 20
Wow! Thank you for all of that work! You rock! (Paper. Scissors.)
Take a break then get out a deck of cards and play one of these games with someone.
Players divide cards up evenly between themselves.
Each player turns over 2 cards and adds them together.
The highest sum gets all the cards! (your two cards and the opponent’s two cards.) Aces count as 1.
In the event of a tie (ie. Each player has the same sum), WAR is declared. Each player deals out three more cards face down AND THEN also turns over two more cards. The two cards are added together. The highest sum wins all of these cards!
Keep playing until all of the cards are won by one player.
Variation: Vary the number of cards to modify the level of difficulty.
ie. Turn of three cards and place:
2 and 3 side by side to make twenty-three 23
Put one card under the 23 6
Add 23 and 6 29
Play like Addition War but subtract!
