Interactive games are a hit during Math time. Working with the fact families is way more fun when manipulatives are used. Here the children were engaged in matching up the fact families with the number sentences. After sorting them and finding 8 matching pairs, they worked in partners and did a memory game. This was more difficult than expected, so I would recommend starting with only 4 pairs each. After they master the concept, increase the number of pairs used. The colors did help a bit because they knew it wasn't a match if the colors were different. Some groups had 3 people so everyone was able to play at once.
They used Fact Family Triangles from my TpT store.
Place value and number values are other Math concepts that continue to need practice. I got some great snowman cards that used base ten blocks, number words, expanded notation, and standard notation. There were also some snowmen cards with 3 digit numbers and < > = mats to decide which numbers were greater than, less than or equal. Unfortunately, I seem to have lost the file on my computer, and the cards don't have any markings on them that indicate the creator. If you recognize them, I would love to know who they belong to so that I can give them credit and let them know how great they are.
