Anybody who has ever spent 5 minutes in a Kindergarten room knows that 5 and 6 year old's need to MOVE! In an effort to keep them moving and engaged in learning, whip out some “Slam Dunk Math Review” to use with your students! The only thing not included in this pack is the ball and over-the-door goal! This game targets standard K.OA.2 of the Common Core.
Divide the students into teams. Students will take a card and answer the question on it. (I recommend giving each child a question card at the same time. This way they all have something to work on and have some time to reach an answer.) Each child will have their own “Playbook” – a workspace where they can draw pictures to solve their problem or use a number line.
If the students answer correctly, they get to shoot a basket for their team! At the end of the game, the team that has scored the most points wins!
I hope you and your students have fun with this!
