Fun Activities
with
Fact Families
Skill: Recognizing addition and subtraction fact families
Number of players: 1 to whole class
Object of the game: Write the fact families for the given numbers
Supplies: Game board for each player. Buttons or coins to be used as Counters for each player. The number of counters needed depends on the size of numbers you want your students to work on. For fact families up to 20, each player will need 20 counters.
Preparation: Print game board for each player. Copy and laminate the game board. Each player should be given the appropriate number of counters.
To Play:
For the example, in the above picture, each player could write the following fact families on their sheet:
Addition Facts 4 + 1 = 5 1 + 4 = 5 |
Subtraction Facts 5 - 1 = 4 5 - 4 = 1 |
Fact Family Cards
Another
fun and simple 1st grade math activity to help the young ones to learn
addition and subtraction facts is with fact family cards. Print off the
Fact Family Cards - Set1. I will be adding more fact family sets for you
to print in the next week or two so check back.
3 + 4 = 7
4 + 3 = 7
7 - 3 = 4
7 - 4 = 3
If
you've haven't use these type of fact family cards before, here's how
they work. As you see above, each card has three numbers on it that
make up a fact family. The card pictured above has four related
facts....
You can cover up one of the numbers on the card as in the picture below. Then say each missing number as part of an addition problem or a subtraction problem. Look at the examples below.
4 + ? = 7
Ask "What plus 4 is 7?"
7 - 4 = ?
Ask "7 minus 4 is what ?"
What is 7 - 3?
