Your first grade and second grade students will play this partner game by solving the 120 addition fact cards (sums 11-18), and then sorting the sums by whether they are odd or even.
To play the game, each player gets a sorting mat (odd sums or even sums). Players take turns solving the cards. If a player gets a sum that matches his or her mat, the player keeps the card. If the card doesn't match his mat, he returns the card to the pile. The first player to cover all eight of the spaces on his or her board wins the game.
Whether you teach homeschool, summer school, or year-round school, using "Summer Sum Sort" is a great way to keep building your students' addition skills this summer!
