Each player will need a game board. Player 1 will roll a die, or two if you choose. Player 1 will put the corresponding number of markers on his/her ten frame. The boxes are narrow, so mini erasers would work best. If you laminate or put the game board in a page protector, students can mark an x in the box with a dry erase pen.
Then Player 2 will roll and place the corresponding number of markers (or X’s) on his/her ten frame.
The winner is the first player to fill his/her ten frames…to roll 40!
Students can also play individually and see how many rolls it takes to get to 40.
There are two different game boards. One has a section for students to tally their rolls and see how many rolls it takes to get to 40.
This is a great math center or morning tub!
