Thanks for checking out my product!
This pack contains TEN colorful Spin ‘n Build math boards, as well as optional arrows for the spinners.
• Print all pages on white cardstock or construction paper.
• Laminate all pages.
• If using the optional arrows that are included, cut those out! HOWEVER!!! – I suggest using paperclips as spinner arrows... MUCH EASIER!!!
• Simply poke a hole through the designated circle in the middle of each spinner and attach the paperclip (or paper arrow) with a brass fastener. Do so LOOSELY so the clip/arrow can move freely (too tight and it won’t budge).
• Gather some counters (ANYTHING WORKS!!).
• Now you’re ready to play!
I’ve included 10 boards so MANY kiddos can play at once. Also, this helps keep things exciting because there are so many different, colorful designs! Game play is simple: 1) get a Spin ‘n Build math board; 2) spin the spinner; 3) read the number aloud; 4) build the number on the two 10-frames w/ counters.
This is fun, simple practice of number recognition, counting, and creating sets of numbers – all within 20! Students begin to see and understand ten and some more, an important step in grasping our base ten system!
My kids love it! Keep things even more exciting by swapping counters, using playdoh, or drawing with dry erase markers when making the spun number on the 10-frames!
Another way to adapt this activity it to give 2 students different Spin ‘n Build math boards. Have them spin a number, build it on the 10-frames, and award a “point” to the player with the greatest number! Things can get really interesting and lively when there are points at stake!!!
Such a fun center activity with SO MANY different ways to play!
Happy spinning! ☺
