Need a Brain Break?
Do your students need a brain break while review break while practicing their Addition skills?
This is a new and exciting lightning team-based game in which students compete against each other while practicing their addition skills. Who will win? Team Gold or Team Blue ? In the second game of Addition Double Digit to Single Digit, students will compete each other to help build confidence with Adding Double Digit to Single Digit with no regrouping/carrying.
Two teams compete against each other to see which team remains standing at the end. The rules are posted below from my rules slide. My RTI kids beg to play this over and over again! The teachers at my school beg for this game for their own kids.
From the Directions Slide:
Students are broken up into two lines.
The person at the front of each line faces off against each other.
Teachers project the problems onto their whiteboard. Using a Dry Erase Marker have the students answer the questions in the boxes.
First Player to Answer Correctly goes to the back of the line and stays in the game. The other player has a seat or goes off to the side to cheer on their classmates.
If the player lands on a “PAWSed” card they have a seat with their teammates.
If a player lands on a HAKUNA MATATA they can go to the back of the line.
If a player lands on In the Jungle they can recall a teammate to their line or take a player from the opposing team and put them on their team!!!
The goal is to get better at Addition.
Hint: Have the students write the problems vertically (Up and Down) to help them.
This Set Includes:
Common Core State Standards
PAWSED, Hakuna Matata, In the Jungle Slides

A special thanks to my teacher colleagues (You know who you are for suggesting that I share my lightning game with others!) and to my RTI Students.
