As an elementary school teacher I have used Domino Addition in my second grade classroom in several different ways.
In the teacher edition of our math book Domino Addition was suggested when introducing addition strategies. Simple exercises were demonstrated on page-after-colorful page in sequence for all the addition facts from 0+0 to 6+6. The correct answer was displayed in the corner of the next page to add to the suspense and verify their response. While I read them each page I set up a large colorful set of Dominoes as we completed the math addition sentence. We then used it in a small group math center for a game. It now holds a special place in our classroom library for independent reading and as a cooperative learning experience with partners. This basic lesson plan of "I do, we do, you do" is easily incorporated with the use of this book as a tool. We will continue using this book, along with domino tiles, to enhance their automatic response to the basic addition facts. When we are ready for multi-digit addition they will not hesitate to have a command of the basic facts.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I even read this book to my kindergarten-age grandson. While we were playing and learning my younger three-year old grandson joined in the fun. He was really responding very well. I highly recommend Domino Addition to teachers, moms, grandmothers and anyone else who wants to have lots of fun. This book is a winner!
