Buster is a busy dog. Everyday when his owners go to work, Buster zooms around the house having lots of fun and getting into a little bit of trouble. Follow Buster as he goes about his day. But make sure he stays out of trouble.
Students will start at Buster and make their way to Buster’s bedtime by rolling the dice. On each spot they land, they must pick a card and solve the problem. For each problem they answer correctly, they can circle that activity on their Buster’s schedule card. The player to make it to bed first wins! For extra laughs, have your students share their Buster schedule with their peers so they can see the silly activities Buster did during the day. This Smarten Up game is a great way for your students to develop their understanding of the magnitude and size of numbers, and practice with basic addition facts to ten.
