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 picture.
In this version of the game, students practice the common core standard Understanding Place Value (CCSS.Math.Content.1.NBT.B.2). There are other versions of Watch, Think, Color available where numbers are represented by tens and ones, coins, and expanded notation, and equations. Find the skill that is right for your class! New pictures and new skills are added often. Follow me for updates!
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! These are also great games to keep on-hand for a rainy day or when you have a sub!
Students will need a hundreds chart to play this game. I have some available for free in my store or you may print some from the slides in the game.
The Common Core Standards were developed and written by the NGA.
