Most of my students don’t enjoy just doing practice problems over and over again. With this game, we both win: I get to have them do repeated practice AND review math vocabulary when filling in squares, and they get to be competitive and work for a prize!
Students should know the meaning of the following terms: more than, less than, product, quotient, sum, difference, even, odd, factor, multiple, doubles, and the values of a dime, quarter, and nickel.
I recommend printing the game board on colored card stock and laminating for durability.
As always, this resource is visually simple featuring Arial size 14 font and no crazy graphics.
HOW TO PLAY:
Have your student do a practice problem and then fill in a square that describes their answer. For example, if they multiplied to get the answer “20”, they could fill in “product,” “multiple of 10,” “even”, “2 digits,” “a factor of 20”, etc. Then it’s your turn. Follow the same procedures to model correct problem solving for your student. The object of the game is to get 4 or 5 in a row.
