**How do you use these in your classroom?**

These task cards are a great hands on center for your students to complete either independently or with a partner. When students are moving through math centers, I like to assign these task cards for students to complete. You can also use these in small groups as you guide them through the activity and re-teach as needed.

**What is included in this unit?**

There are six different task card centers included in this unit (with 20+ cards each):

here students will look at each number in the equation. Using links, they will build each number directly below the equation. Then, they will add and use an expo marker to write the sum in the box.*Link and Add:*here students will use either black beans, black pom poms, or an expo marker to represent “seeds” for each number in the equation. After adding the “seeds” onto the watermelon, they would find the sum and write it in the box using a marker.*Count and Add:*here students will use play dough to make small dough balls for each number and fill the ten frame. Once ten frame is filled, they would go back and “smash” each ball with their finger as they add them together to get the total. Then, they can trace the addends and write the sum in the box with a marker.*Roll, Smash & Add:**Add*here students will look at the number in the middle of the grid. Next, they will go around the grid and read and solve the equations. Students will then clip all of the equations with the target sum.*and Clip:*- Bonus numbers 11 & 12

here students will look at the target sum in the bubble. They will then use unifix cubes or counters to cover all of the equations that equal the target sum.*Add and Cover:*- Bonus numbers 11 & 12

Here students will use unifix cubes to build the first number on the domino. Then they will add the second number stacked on top on the previous. Using an expo marker, they will fill in the equation and find the sum.*Stack and Add:*

*Please note: these cards should be laminated so they can be used with dry-erase markers over and over again.*

Enjoy!
