These games are for you then! These are fun ways to have your kids practice these skills. Here's how to play...
Capture The Shape-
A. Look at the x and y axis. Note the scale, or intervals, of your coordinate grid. You may need to fill in any missing numbers.

It’s Tic Tac Toe Time!
Get into a group of three!
Fill in any missing intervals on your x and y axis!
Choose one person to be x, one person to be y, and one person to be the recorder.
Determine who will go first.
The first player tells the recorder a coordinate point they want to “claim”. Only the recorder may write on the grid. The recorder must mark the coordinate pair the player says. So …really think through where you say, once you say it, the recorder must write it just as you said!
Next, the first player records the point into their box. above the grid.
Now, it is the next players turn.
Play continues this way.
