here, but they really seemed to need a bit more this year.
So after scouring the internet, I found this really fun game that cemented the idea for them. If you click here, you can get all the templates for FREE. Now, let me explain the game to you.
The first player to 100 points is the winner.
The kids LOVED it! They were literally cheering when they got positive point totals. It was fun!
One thing that I would caution is that my students wanted to add the number they rolled instead of where they landed. So if they rolled a 2, they wanted to add 2. If they rolled a 1 they wanted to add (-1). When I noticed that, I had to redirect the entire class and put us all back on track. But they finally understood and we were on our way.
This game is now in my "May Do" center for Math Workshop. They are so happy :)
