By the end of Kindergarten, students are expected to fluently add and subtract within 5. We started working on this standard in small groups before Winter Break, but now it is a DAILY MATH CENTER. I have several different games for working on Making 5, but we all know, Kindergarteners get bored of playing the same game. I created this easy to play Four in a Row Game. Students turn over a five frame card and determine how many more they need to make 5. Then, they cover that number space. Whoever gets Four in a Row first wins.
Like many of you, I have Kindergarten students who have already mastered how to Make 5, so also included Make Ten. This game is easy to prep and it is an ink saver. You can print it out in black and white on any colored paper you may have. You just need to cut the Make 5/Make 10 cards and cut out the squares to cover.
