Product Description
Played like the game of "Spoons," this small-group game will help your student practice basic computation with order of operations.

Divide students in to small groups of 4 players. In the middle of the group, place 3 spoons (or any other object, really! I like to use small colored pom-poms.) The game comes with 16 cards--4 of each that equal the same amount. Students will deal the cards out so that each player receives 4 cards. They will study their cards to see if they have 4 of a kind. If not, they will each pass a card face-down to the player to the right.

When all players have passed a card, at the same time, the players will pick up their new cards in hopes of making 4 of a kind. When this finally happens, a player will grab one of the "spoons" and the other players will try to be quick to follow suit. The player without a spoon will get a letter of any word you choose. (ie, Spoons, Math, a student's name, etc)

For each new hand, players will shuffle and re-deal the deck. Play continues until the last player to spell out the word is declared the "winner"! If you have unequal groups, kids can play in a group of three and deal a "ghost" hand. Print on cardstock and laminate if you'd like to reuse the game. (Print in black & white, if color printing is an issue.)

Students will beg to play this game! It is action-packed! However, be warned you will have to set clear expectations about acceptable "grabbing" procedure. : )

Enjoy!

p.s. Feedback is always appreciated! Thank you!
