Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 1 page | Grades: 2 - 3

A game to practice working with addition and subtraction fact families using double-digits.

Use this teaching resource when teaching students about fact families involving double-digit addition and subtraction.

Print out the resource on cardstock and cut out the game squares. Place them in a resealable bag to be used again and again.

How to Use the Resource: 

  • Students will play this game in pairs. First, they need to place all of the game squares faceup between them.
  • Students take turns rolling two dice and finding their sum. Then, students must find the card where their sum completes the addition sentence and the matching subtraction sentence, e.g. they roll a 4 and a 5 so their sum is 9. They can complete the card 24 + ___ = 33 and the matching subtraction sentence is 33 – 24 = ___. When they find them, they flip them both over.
  • Play continues until all of the cards have been flipped over.
