It’s NOGGLE time. This game is just like the classic Boggle, except with numbers instead.
The aim is for students to create as many number sentences as they can using the numbers provided. Each number can only be used once in a sum. Unlike Boggle, the numbers do not need to be touching. This allows for more combinations to be found.
These games were designed to practise addition and subtraction skills, however multiplication and division facts can also be found.
20 different game-boards included. Every game-board is accessible at a variety of levels. Sums that can be made in each game-board include:
- 1 digit addition 3+4=7
- Easy place value addition 20+5=25
- And more complex sums 15+13=28
The game-boards also increase in difficulty. The first few sheets deal mostly with number facts to 20 and 30. This progresses to sums to 50, and by the end of the sheets, sums to 100.
The game boards can be used in a multitude of ways. You can give all students the same board to complete against each other, or mix it up for a different challenge. Students could work individually, in pairs or groups.
I find these boards make the perfect quick brain break or fast finisher activity. You could even display the gameboard on an IWB as a math warmup.
No prep required, simply print the game-boards and you’re ready to go. I like to laminate mine so they can be reused with whiteboard markers.
