PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a great game for students to practice their number bonds and is super simple to set up.

Go to your pantry and dig out a packet of large dried beans*. You know, the ones you bought ages ago when you were going to get more fiber in your diet. Yep, there they are--hidden behind the dark chocolate.

Dump the beans into a container.

Print out The Bean Game sheet.

Work your math center magic. You can get all fancy if you want or you can just plunk the container and the directions down on a table.

Let your students have at it.

I credit my children's supervising teacher cluing me into this game. I thought it would be a great center idea. If you want to see how I used this game in my homeschool classroom visit my blog: Lessons In Homeschooling

You can follow me on TPT as well so you’ll get updates when I post more math games.

*Note: If you are highly suspicious your class contains the type of student likely to stick beans in unsanctioned places choose something larger for the manipulative like base ten blocks. It is just easier to work with larger numbers + student hand sizes if you are using manipulatives the size of dried beans.

I have heard of a similar game but I like how you repeat the activity with the same number of beans 3x before moving on to another number. I also like the photographs you include with the directions.
