These free Graph the Sum addition games are a fun way to get your students extra computation practice.
This is another free resource for teachers by The Curriculum Corner.
These free Graph the Sum games have been created to help your students with addition fluency.
We try to use lots of game when we begin working on math fact fluency. This is because we believe that the more students are engaged in their work, the quicker they will begin memorizing their facts.
We have included different skill levels in this collection for those students who have already mastered their basic facts.
How do I set up my Graph the Sum center?
The download we are sharing contains three games in black and white and three in color. We have used a small amount of color to add some fun but not so much that you will use tons of ink.
To create your center, begin by printing the game boards you need on white card stock.
Next, laminate your games for durability.
Finally, stock your center with dry erase or Vis-a-Vis markers.
*Another option is to simply print on regular paper and allow your students to color with crayons.
How do students play the game?
This is designed to be a single person game.
First, students will roll two dice.
Add the numbers to find the sum. (We have also included one version where students will then add 10 and another where students will then add 100 to the sum. This will make it easier for you to differentiate depending on the needs of your students.)
Before students begin, be sure to let your students know how many boxes they need to color in. They will then stop when they reach their goal.
