Here are some pictures of what they did. Each student should have a paper plate with 3 compartment, counters, die, and a response sheet which I am giving to you for FREE!!
The student rolls their die and places that many counter in the small compartment, rolls it a second time and places that many counters in the second small spot. Then we have been talking about the plus sign and that it means you put numbers or things together. So after they have their two small sections filled with counters they "join" them together in the big bottom part. Students then have to draw their picture on the recording sheet and complete the addition sentence.
Here is an example of the worksheet that I created to go along with this activity. I included the vocabulary so students learn how to read an addition sentence.
I loved watching their little minds at work. If you would like to download the worksheet to go along with this game, click on the picture below. Happy Teaching!!
