One of my students’ favorite math stations last year was Domino Math. This station stayed constant from January to the end of the year. It was fairly simple: My students would select a domino and write the equation on this page. I can differentiate this by sorting the dominoes I want my students to use. Some students will use equations to 5, others may use equations to 10. The same paper can be used for addition and subtraction.

This includes 10 different math story cards. I copied them onto cardstock, laminated them, and clipped them together with a bookbinder ring. (I wish I had a picture to show you). I let my students decide which story card they wanted to use. The AMAZING Fran at Kindergarten Crayons also created some WONDERFUL ones on her site. You can grab them here and here.
I also created another FREE file. You will find the link at the bottom of this post. You can find similar activities for the whole year by clicking HERE.
This FREEBIE has over 130 addition and subtraction cards (working with numbers to 10). For younger students (kindergarten) they will use manipulatives to solve the problem. Older students (1st or 2nd grade) can use the cards to build math facts fluency and automaticity.
Thank you, Cheryl, for hosting Chapter 5. Hop over to her blog to see what the smart bloggers had to say about this chapter.
