# Shake and Spill

Have you ever seen such a crazy factory? This fun factory brings whimsical fun to addition facts practice.

How does it work? Simply select a number from 1 to 10 and watch the factory get to work. After beeping, flashing, and honking, the factory will produce a set of red and yellow counters. Plus, you’ll see an addition equation that needs to be filled in. Sort and rearrange the counters by clicking and dragging them. Finally, fill in the equation by clicking and dragging numbers to the empty spaces. The game will help students along the way by not allowing incorrect numbers to be placed in the equation. When the correct equation is achieved, students get positive feedback.

During this process, the concept of addends is reinforced. Students can use one addend to represent the yellow counters and the other to represent the red counters. The sum is represented by all of the counters together. Thanks to the counters, each equation is modeled, giving students a concrete understanding of addition.
