This resource is an instructional game geared toward helping students add numbers efficiently and to use basic estimation skills. The game requires a game board, the included “target number” cards, and 4 dice. The purpose of this game is to get students to realize that you can add numbers in any order (the associative and commutative properties) and that they can make mental math easier by being strategic about which two numbers to add first. It also works to help students anchor to 10 and develop number sense.
Students roll the dice and use as many of the 4 dice as they need to get as close to the target number as possible. The closer they are, the more “tokens” they earn! This is one of my students’ FAVORITE games, and I have watched them become so much more fluent after playing it for some time!
