Slide those worksheets over! This product is efficient, practical, engaging and a great tool to bring students together working cooperatively and creatively. Three years ago, I began creating Nine Square Craze to increase engagement in an intervention classroom. I had to find a different way to help my students grow without requiring additional hours of planning and preparation on top of the time I was already spending planning three grade levels of math instruction. I also needed activities that I could easily fit into a class period or as a station in a workshop structured classroom.
Increase engagement, creativity, and fun while GROWING math skills!
All Nine Square Craze activities are designed for EFFICIENT use of time, high ENGAGEMENT, COOPERATIVE learning, and useful FORMATIVE assessment.
GREAT for partners, small groups, stations, workshops, enrichment, and INTERVENTIONS!
Each Nine Square Craze product includes three individual activities at three different rigor levels- practical DIFFERENTIATION!
• Level 1 Board: Foundation computation/knowledge practice for the content/CCSS.
• Level 2 Board: Increases the computational processes, sometimes requiring more than one step.
• Level 3 Board: Higher rigor computation and often includes real-world applications.
Each level has THREE formats:
1. The Original: Black font no background: great for printing on color card stock/ paper.
2. Zany Numbers: Squares are numbered randomly for students to move around the board.
3. The Path: A more traditional game board format.
