DD took a domino and created an addition problem writing it on her recording sheet.
We used the domino recording sheet from Mathwire. You can find more domino math ideas on the investigating dominoes page and on this Mathwire page.There’s a cute activity also for addition called the domino parking lot with use with regular sized dominoes.
|ED simply counted the dots and put her wooden numbers on top of each side of the domino.|
You can extend these activities by printing out the double-nine domino set from Mathwire.
P.S. Update: The next year, I needed a domino page for ED when she was working on addition.
I needed one that wouldn’t overwhelm ED. I wanted just a few problems on the page. Also, it needed to be big enough for her to write her large numbers. Plus, our wooden domino set is large and I wanted the dominoes on the sheet to be about the same size. Anyway, for all those reasons I made ED her own domino sheet which is free to download below. 🙂 ~Liesl
