Slice and Solve: Mastering Near Doubles Facts

Enhance your students’ addition skills in a deliciously engaging way with this pizza-themed resource designed to reinforce near doubles facts. On each of the cute pizza-themed task cards, there is a doubles fact and then a near doubles fact the students need to work out. Two sets of task cards are provided, one with pepperoni for the students to use as a counting tool and one without pepperoni.

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding

A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your Maths lessons.

If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners, check out these suggestions for keeping students on track with the concepts:

🆘 Support Struggling Students

Help students who need help understanding the concepts by allowing them to use maths manipulatives.

➕ Challenge Fast Finishers

Challenge your students to work out the near doubles fact in a timed scenario, can they get quicker and quicker?

🛴 Scoot Activity

Place the cards around the room in numerical order and give each student a recording sheet. Assign students or pairs to a starting point card. Give students time to review the card and record their answers in the corresponding space on their paper. Students will rotate to the next card when you say, “SCOOT!” Continue in this manner until students return to their starting point.

👋 Exit Ticket

Use these cards as a formative assessment after your lesson. Pick a random assortment of cards and project them on the board for the whole class to see. Students can record their answers on a sheet of paper, sticky note or notebook.

Easily Prepare This Resource for Your Students

Print on cardboard for added durability and longevity. Place all pieces in a folder or large envelope for easy access.

To keep the task cards out of pockets or under desks, punch a hole in the corner of each to place them on a binder ring.

Sustainability Tip: Print a few recording sheets on cardboard and slip them into write-and-wipe sleeves. Students can record their answers with a whiteboard marker, then erase and reuse them.
