Pinkie the Marshmallow wants to move to Marshmallow Land. However, Pinkie can’t imagine leaving all her pals behind so it’s up to you help her pick up as many pals as possible on her way to her new candy home in Marshmallow Land!
Player must start at Pinkie, and make their way to the candy house by rolling the dice. On each spot players land, they must pick a card and solve the word problem in order to pick up a pal. If a player lands on an “Addition Challenge” space, he/she must complete the addition problems in the amount of time stated to pick up 2 pals! The player to pick up the most marshmallow friends wins!
This cute file folder game encourages students to thoughtfully solve addition and subtraction word problems. Students are also timed on their addition facts so that teachers can access their fluency. The use of a timer is suggested. This game is a great way for teachers to assess student understanding as opposed to traditional pencil and paper tests.
*print additional game cards depending on the number of students playing.
