Build a Snowman 2 Digit Addition and Subtraction Problem Solving Game is a great game to practice addition and subtraction word problems.
Setting it up: The first page is the directions and title page. I glued it to the front of the file folder. The page that has snowman body parts is glued to the left of the file folder. The pages that are labeled player 1,2,3 needs to be cut into 4 pieces and laminated. Cut and laminate the word problem cards marked A- II (35 word problems) glue answers on the back. They can also just write it in their workstation spiral or on a loose leaf paper. I laminated the file folder so that I can use it year after year.
Directions: Choose a word problem from the deck (answers on the back). Solve the problem, if they get it correct they get to spin the spinner. (included are two spinners one on top and one on the bottom) They only choose one spinner and using a large paper clip and a pencil they spin on the spinner. (the paperclip is the spinner and the pencil holds it in place) They get to add the snowman's body part they landed on to their player 1 sheet. Example if I spin and land on head. I would draw a head. If I got the answer wrong, I would lose my turn. Then the next player would go. The next time it is my turn I would spin on either spinner to try to get the body part I need to complete my snowman. It's kind of like the game Cootie only using a spinner.
When the player gets the answer correct they get to spin the spinner of snowman parts. The first player to build a snowman wins.
