Math Games Are "Snow" Much Fun!
A fun way for students to practice addition and subtraction is with Dominic the Domino Snowman.
Students roll a pair of dice and then add and subtract. Children write out the equations and complete the work on a separate sheet of paper.
To make this even more interesting, students use dominoes for Dominic's buttons, finding matching ones that correspond with the dice combinations they rolled.
You can play with real dominoes, or run off my templates to make paper ones.
Run off, color and laminate a class set of the snowman templates and use dry erase markers, or have students color their own snowman and record their work on a separate sheet of paper.
