Alright, all ya alls . . . I promised to hook you up and this girl makes good on her word. There is a fun little math ditty down there for ya. We tried it out in class this afternoon and the kids really enjoyed it! SCORE 🙂
This week we have been hitting that number sense with all out might. Our afternoons have been filled with counting, comparing, ordering, and those all-mighty number words. To help get a little bit of everything in today, we played Number Word Knockout.
Here’s how this one works (it’s nothing new really . . . but it just has a little extra sparkle in a few places).
- Every student gets a pair of dice, three crayons of choice, and a marker.
- When play begins, students take turns rolling their dice. They count the dots, trace the number word in marker, and color the box (coloring was just to slow them down a bit and to engage them a bit more – they choose which colors to use each time).
- They continue in this fashion until their board is filled or time is called.
All in all, it was a great success. I know it’s a rather old concept, but that smelly made all the difference. If you are interested, you can snag this “oldie, but a goodie” down below – just click the image to download.

Well, it’s off to sleep I go my friends. Grandparent’s Day at school tomorrow could be the death of me. I will be back this weekend with the 411 on the Top Teacher Fantasy Football League and a few other treats. Thanks for visiting and happy Friday.
