What educators are saying
Have you heard of Toothy® yet?! Toothy® task kits are highly engaging task card games or centers that allow students to practice skills and answer questions in a fun, motivating way. The answers on the back of the task cards make the activity self-paced and self-correcting.
Teach the rules for Toothy® once at the beginning of the year, then simply switch out the topic each week and use the activity all year!

HOW TO PLAY:
Each partner gets a Toothy mat and dry erase marker. Students will take turns choosing a card. Each student who is playing the game will solve the problem on their Toothy mat or dry erase board. When all who are playing have answered the question, they compare their answers and then turn the card over to check to see if their answer is correct. Those who have a correct answer get to draw a tooth in Toothy’s mouth on their mat. If the student’s answer is incorrect, they do not draw a tooth and those who got the answer correct must explain how they got to the correct answer. Then the next student draws the next card and the process is repeated. The game is over once all 20 cards have been answered. The student with the most teeth in Toothy’s mouth is the winner of the game.
