These math activities are perfect for your early-finishers to work on while your class is studying any subject in math! This pack focuses on the CCSS math practices, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, rounding, place value, and fractions, but you can use any of these activities at any time during the year. By nature, all of these projects are differentiated; your students will create finished products based on their current abilities.

Everyone loves to play “I Have, Who Has?” in their classroom, but it takes MUCH more skill to create an “I Have, Who Has?” game than it does to play one. If your kids are familiar with how the game works, these challenging enrichment activities will address many Common Core State Standards while helping your students build many problem-solving skills.

With almost no prep, this is very teacher-friendly! The only materials you need are index cards/construction paper cut into cards and a few copies. You might choose to supply your students with one or two “I Have, Who Has?” games to use as a mentor when they create their game, but this is not necessary. Students should already be very familiar with how the game works when they begin this project. Here's an added bonus: if you use your students’ games during whole-class instruction or Morning Meeting, you will really support your sense of community within your classroom, and you will have additional classroom math tools to use! Your students will be creating possible enrichment activities for other students when they make these games also.

These will be rather difficult projects for some students—resist the urge to help them as much as you possibly can. They are capable of doing this independently, and they will learn a lot about checking over their own work if they complete this on their own.

This product addresses many standards, but every one of the included activities in this bundle addresses the following Common Core State Standards:

CCSS.MATH.PRACTICE.MP1 Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

CCSS.MATH.PRACTICE.MP6 Attend to precision.

Attend to precision. Mathematically proficient students try to communicate precisely to others. They try to use clear definitions in discussion with others and in their own reasoning. They state the meaning of the symbols they choose, including using the equal sign consistently and appropriately. They are careful about specifying units of measure, and labeling axes to clarify the correspondence with quantities in a problem. They calculate accurately and efficiently, express numerical answers with a degree of precision appropriate for the problem context. In the elementary grades, students give carefully formulated explanations to each other. By the time they reach high school they have learned to examine claims and make explicit use of definitions.
Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Mathematically proficient students start by explaining to themselves the meaning of a problem and looking for entry points to its solution. They analyze givens, constraints, relationships, and goals. They make conjectures about the form and meaning of the solution and plan a solution pathway rather than simply jumping into a solution attempt. They consider analogous problems, and try special cases and simpler forms of the original problem in order to gain insight into its solution. They monitor and evaluate their progress and change course if necessary. Older students might, depending on the context of the problem, transform algebraic expressions or change the viewing window on their graphing calculator to get the information they need. Mathematically proficient students can explain correspondences between equations, verbal descriptions, tables, and graphs or draw diagrams of important features and relationships, graph data, and search for regularity or trends. Younger students might rely on using concrete objects or pictures to help conceptualize and solve a problem. Mathematically proficient students check their answers to problems using a different method, and they continually ask themselves, "Does this make sense?" They can understand the approaches of others to solving complex problems and identify correspondences between different approaches.
