Kenzie's Cupcakes is an engaging place value game that encourages students to practice logical reasoning skills in a motivating, "hands-on" way. Students flip dominoes, set numbers in place value and make decisions how they should be sequenced , from the least to the greatest value.
Students use their critical thinking and predicting skills as they place their dominoes onto their cupcakes, hoping that their predictions will match their actual dominoes ( in place value), once they have been revealed.
The game rules are easy to explain and after a few simple demonstrations, students are ready to play independently, allowing you to facilitate and guide their learning as they interact with their "partner in play".
The cupcake game boards are very appealing to students and make excellent printable, activity boards for centers, whole class activities, math game journals and homework extensions.
The recording game board is also very useful for students to compare different rounds of play and for teacher assessment. All of the game boards come in full color or black-line masters.
Pair students up and have them play as partner teams to encourage cooperative learning and decision making.
This game is a fan favorite at Family Math Nights and is also a great activity for students to challenge their parents at Parent Conference time.
