~~~ Kid Tested—Educator approved: The feedback from TpT teachers and my fellow teachers at school, who use these grade-level interactive sets of task and game cards, state that kids are engaged and enthused; that the students are focused on the screen, calculating the problems, helping one another with the answers, laughing at the images and animations, and most of all – TALKING OUT LOUD ABOUT MATH.
~~~ YOUR SATISFACTION IS BACKED BY A MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE! ~~~
ACCOUNTABLE TALK: You will see your students become TEAM PLAYERS as they “talk it out” and problem-solve. They can pick an advisor, take a team vote or decide alone for the answers. The game provides immediate reinforcement of correct thinking about math.
These 25 engaging problems progressively develop the standard and clarify the entire 2.G.3.
2.G.3: Partition circles and rectangles into two, three, or four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, thirds, half of, a third of, etc., and describe the whole as two halves, three thirds, four fourths. Recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape.
Idea: Several teachers have used our 2nd grade math, THINK ON YOUR FEET, for their in-class evaluation. The “Admin” were impressed with the student enthusiasm, interaction, and collaboration.
