I’m so excited about this week’s Workshop Wednesday!
I absolutely LOVE finding and/or creating new math games for my kiddos to play, so today’s topic is: What math games do you and your kiddos love to play? Share and promote! 🙂
The first game I will share with you is called Witzzle Pro. I adapt it for my classroom, but the actual directions that come with the game are really fun, too!! The way I play in my room: no dice are needed…each set of partners gets a card (see above). I give them a range of numbers that I want them to find equations for (like 10-20). They must use order of operations to create at least one problem that will have an answer for each number in that range. All of the numbers must stay in order either forwards, backwards, horizontal, vertical, or diagonal! For example, the card standing up by itself in the picture above… the top row could be used this way:
The kids have a lot of fun with it and it’s a GREAT way to practice order of operations!
I’ve also created some math games for use in my room. All of these are FREE in my TPT store, so feel free to click on the pictures of them to download them. These games are also included in my Common Core Math Units that I’ve created- along with other games, lessons, and fun activities of course. 🙂
