We call it the *Hangout Day*

....Saturday that is.

When my kids come in to see why mommy isn't running around like a mad woman and it is 7:00 am, they realize it is Hangout Day.

What that means for us?

*Daddy left for a job site a few hours away- boo

*My kids.... lots of snuggling in pj's on the couch!

*Mommy is finishing up this...

Sound like a unit you may need?  If your students are like mine, they could use a WHOLE lot more addition time, but your curriculum needs you to keep going. Hopefully these addition games/activities will be quick additions to your plans or math work stations that will help your students work on their number sense and addition automaticity.

Don't worry about me, I will take lots of snuggle breaks and I may make it out of my pj's, but there will be nothing rigorous (I am sure you all are hearing that word a lot right now) about my activity.

Happy Saturday friends!


  1. I for sure need this!!! We are starting addition in 2 weeks.

  2. I do too! My kids are ok with addition but it needs to be a quicker process. I still have too many finger counters!!
