Problem Solving Christmas Presents is fun when you can practice addition with regrouping along with mental math strategies.
The simple game rules allow children to be playing within minutes.
Game variations are flexible so that children can play independently, against another partner or cooperatively as a team.
Students flip dominoes, make decisions using their logical reasoning skills and try to target the sum of their Christmas Present.
A useful Mental Math Mat is included to help children organize their dominoes into groups for easy addition.
Mental math strategies can be reviewed first or as part of the game process and your students will have fun trying to target each present on the various game boards.
Student recording sheets are also provided.
Your "Little Geniuses" will have fun with these engaging activities and so will you.
Thank you to My Cute Graphics for the fun Christmas clip art.
