These roll and write games require students to count forward, backwards, and skip count by 2's, 5's, or 10's from ANY GIVEN NUMBER. I have included 13 different game boards that I use in my own classroom throughout the year. The games are leveled so as students become fluent with counting forward and backwards they can move on to more advanced skills (i.e. skip counting backwards by 2's, identifying the rule in the sequence). Students can play by themselves or with a partner. Regardless, the best part is you can use it TODAY--all that's required is one copy for each student and a six-sided die. Laminate and use over and over--GREAT for math centers!
-1 game board for each player (I’ve included 12 different game boards)
-six sided die
How to Play:
Each student gets a game board. If playing with a partner, students play rock, paper, scissors to decide who goes first. Roll the die. Count the number on the die and cross off that number on the left hand column. The student will then need to figure out if they’re counting by 1’s, 2’s, 5’s or 10’s and then fill in the empty boxes in that row. For example: student A rolls at 2. Cross off the #2 in the left hand column and fill in ALL the empty boxes in the corresponding row. If the student rolls the same number that has already been crossed off, they lose a turn and pass the die to their partner. The first student to have all 6 numbers crossed off and all the corresponding rows filled in correctly wins!
