Guided Math with Dominos

What does that fact look like?

In this activity, students receive a template with number facts.  They then have to find the fact domino that matches the number sentence.  I do this activity with novice mathematicians so they can begin to sort fact dominos and put the domino representation with the number model.  Students enjoy Domino Fact match.  I ask them how they know it’s correct.  I want them to justify their answers.  For the more advanced students we play a different version, where there is a missing addend.   Here is great link to domino math ideas and blackline masters:

Thanks for the new idea for working with dominos. I have so many of them but feel like I do the same activities year after year. I’m sure the kids are going to enjoy this one!
