This package includes 10 GAME BOARDS and an A4 POSTER of the DOUBLES and NEAR-DOUBLES facts.
The PREVIEW is limited due to upload restrictions on TPT, but I have included a freebie board for anyone who wants a better idea.
All you need to start playing are two six-sided dice and 6 counters per board.
I use this game to teach the near-doubles strategy of double+1. As soon as my students have the doubles facts, I introduce this strategy and the game. They catch on very fast and repeated playing means the facts are nicely consolidated quickly.
I have modified the rules so that the winner is the first player to cover three consecutive numbers in a row, but you could also play until the whole board is covered. It depends on how much time you've got. It's a quick game covering just three numbers, and I can play it as the introduction to an intervention session. You could also add it to a Maths Centre. I have included an A4 POSTER to support those students still mastering these facts. This way mixed ability groups can play.
