This two student game is fun for students in 1st, 2nd or 3rd grade. As children answer each question correctly they get to "Feed the Dragon" their good answers on the game board. Each grade has two complete games, one in math and one in language arts, correlated to Common Core Standards for each grade. The game has the questions and answers on each card to make sure answers are accurate. This helps both the child asking the question, as well as the child answering the question. It is useful for teachers as a review of skills learned through the year, and also as a review of last years skills at the beginning of the school year.
Cards for each grade are identifiable by the grade level dragon found on the right hand side of each card. Teachers can choose to use a prior grade's cards and slowly add in more grade level material. Teachers may also choose to allow gifted students to use the next grade level's questions for added difficulty. This makes the game easily differentiated to student needs.
The game includes:
Common Core Standard correlations
1st grade: 24 language arts questions (short and long vowel sounds), 24 math questions (10 more and 10 less than a given number)
2nd grade: 24 language arts questions (irregular plural nouns, capitalize holidays, product names, and geographic names) , 24 math questions (mentally add/subtract 100 to a given number)
