Workshop Wednesday: Math Games

Happy Wednesday!

Time for another Workshop Wednesday with Jivey!
Today's topic is Math Games.

Now, I do have this that came with the pilot:


Grab & Go Kit
as well as a huge selection of manipulatives (although for some things I still don't have a class set-like thousands cubes).

Notice how the title of the kit is Grab and Go?

Yeah, not really. : /

It is more like plan it out, teach the kids, make the copies, then if you have time the kids can grab and go (oh, BUT! most of the games are partner games and there is only one copy for each game-whoops!)

So I haven't really got into it-I'm still struggling to fit a lesson into one day.

But I do want to share an awesome math game that I used last year.

The kids loved it, and I was able to differentiate. (and I loved it too!)

Plus, it's free! (and it's one of Jivey's! Get it here!)

It's her Make One Whole Decimals game.

These are the supplies you need.
Base 10 blocks, dice, game boards (I laminated mine for reuseablity) and vis-a-vis markers
Here is the fun, differentiation part-different dice!
I started with the regular 6 sided dice, then we moved to 12 sided dice, and then finally- 20 sided dice!

The kids LOVED this...especially as we moved up the difficulty of the dice! (Thanks Jivey!!!!)

So, if you are looking for a fun, decimal math game-this is it!

Plus, there are tons of other free math games on TPT.

I like this waaaaaaay better than the grab and go centers...maybe I can sneak it in somewhere! ;)
