This Smarten-Up Dominoes game is a great tool for students to practice their time telling skills as well as vocabulary. Students will practice using the language: quarter to and quarter after.
1.Put the dominoes face down on the table and mix them up.
2. For two players, each person takes 6 dominos. If there
are 3 or more players, each one should draw 3 dominos.
3. The remaining dominoes are left on the table (these are the "sleeping" dominoes). Don't let the other players see your dominos.
4.The first player places one of their dominoes (right-side up) on the table.
5. The second player tries to put a domino on the table that matches one side of what's already there. If a player cannot go, the player picks a domino from the pile and skips that turn.
6. Continue taking turns putting dominoes on the board (or picking one from the pile if you cannot go) until a player has no dominoes left. But, if there are no pieces left in the middle, and everyone still has dominoes, the player with the least pieces is the winner.
