Debbie Diller says to provide your kindergarten students many opportunities to solve story problems. You can find this book by clicking HERE. (affiliate link)

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.

I love the Math Story Cards Ms. Diller included on p 245- 247. However, last year I used Kathy Richardson’s Math Story Cards from this book.

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.

Deedee,

I love your blog…you have so many cute and creative ideas!

With math stations or various activities, how many sets of each game do you make? Or do you just have 1 set of each game?

Thanks!

Laura

Deedee says

Hi Laura! Thank you for the compliment!

I usually only make one copy of the game. Usually, I have just two students working at a station and they work together to complete the task/activity. This seems to work really well when I thoughtfully partner my kiddos.
