Watch, Think, Color! Students watch the board, think about the clues to figure out the number, and color the spot indicated. When they are finished, they have made a cute picture.
Fall Place Value version of the game uses fall trees to represent ones and leaves to represent tens. Kids determine which number is represented and color it on their hundreds chart to create a picture of a rake. At the end of the game, the picture is revealed, animated leaves blow across the screen, and the sound of wind is heard.
This game provides a fun challenge while getting the whole class focused on the activity. They get so sucked into the game, they don't realize they are practicing math skills! Slides change automatically! This game lasts approximately ten minutes. That gives you a chance to grade papers, check email, write a note to a parent, do whatever you need to do! Your class is actively engaged and learning while you can get some work done!
Students will need a hundreds chart to play this game. You can download it for free in my store!
