Do you start your math block with a quick warm up?! I loved to kick off my math block in first grade with a fast and fun activity to get students thinking. I loved this time for spiral review so students can continue practicing skills they’ve already learned throughout the year! The math warm up I am sharing today reviews both addition and subtraction.
It’s called “How Many Equations?!” and all you need to play is some dice! I explain in the video below that I have done this in the past with 3, 4, and 5 dice at a time. I also like to play this game whole group first.
See how to play below:
As I mentioned in the video, you can also do this in small group or individual math centers once students know how to play. To help with that, I created this recording sheet you can grab here >> recording sheet!
