$1 Math Center Spotlight: Pirate Parrots

The pirate parrots are lost! Pirate Parrots is an addition and subtraction relationships center that will help your students practice fact families.

Directions: Help each parrot find its pirate family! Match the parrots to the pirates to complete the related facts. Find the missing numbers. Write your work on a record sheet!

This printable center includes the following materials:

  1. 4 activity mats with 4 fact families each
  2. Matching parrot cards
  3. Directions, storage labels, and a record sheet
  4. Color and black & white versions to help you save on ink!

How to use this in your classroom:

  1. Assign as an individual, partner, or small-group center!
  2. Engage your students during targeted, small-group instruction!
  3. Invite students to use when they finish other assignments early!
  4. Prep your sub plans with ease- called away to a meeting? Unexpected sick day? Your students will love playing this math game individually, in partners/groups, or teacher vs. student on a document camera!
  5. Fill extra time at the end of a lesson with a meaningful, standards-based activity!
  6. Print black & white copies to send home with your struggling students for extra practice!
