Mrs. Jump blogged about not being able to throw anything away (I hear ya sister). But it was her picture of the THOUSANDS of Themed erasers she had...oh my word it was like Christmas in June or something.
I am working on creating game boards for plus 2 and 3, doubles, and adding two dice...so look out for those. I'm also working on ones for subtraction...but I've got to get busy on my post for chapter 6: Place Value and finish the game labels for Mastering the Basic Math Facts first. Thanks for all the suggestions!
6/21: I love suggestions on how to make any of my games better. Please don't stop leaving them...they help me to improve and see things in another way. That's what I want this blog to be all about...teachers helping teachers. Everyone have a blessed and light filled day. :)
All you need are counters(the two sided ones with a different color on each side) and a die. Students can share the game board or have their own.
They roll the die and add one to the number they rolled, look for it on their mat and cover it. If you share one game board they have to decided which side of the counters they'll use for the game...red or yellow.
The first one to get five in a row is the winner.
Here's the best part...I made boards for the entire year....goes to another point of increasing novelty (another thing Mrs. Jump said). The concept is the same but you change out game boards and use some of those themed erasers and there you go.
Click on the picture above to download your set. I was little lazy...I changed the pictures but not the placement of the numbers(forgive me)...but they'll still get the job done.
