PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A fun game to help your students practice their fluency with adding and subtracting by 1s, 10s, and 100s. This is a great way to review and reinforce place value and skip counting. Included is an instruction sheet and answer key. Jumping Puddles can be played by the whole class or students with similar skill levels can play against each other.

This game can be modified for struggling students by using a two digit number or you can use a four digit number for a little extra challenge. Have fun!
Follow me: Math - It Works for more games, activities and assessments. Coming soon, Jumping Puddles with 5s, 10s, 25s, and 100s.

Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  March 3, 2013,  Buyer asked:
I like the idea of your game, it seems a fun way for my lower functioning students to review. How do you come up with a beginning number or is it just any number one would choose? Thank you
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  March 3, 2013Math - It Works answered:
Hello!
You can choose any number. You can make the activity more challenging by choosing a number close to an even hundred (like 195 or 690) because this seems to be more difficult for students to negotiate adding and subtracting 5 and 10. For struggling students you can always stick to 2-digit numbers. Whatever number you begin with, just add 17 for the final result. Enjoy!
