Take a look at my idea and grab my apple game that's FREE thru Thursday, September 23rd. (Sorry, but after the hop, this item is no longer free. Be sure to follow my blog to catch the next freebie!) Then, click on the link at the bottom to hop on through!
I have been making and using games in my classroom for many years. I love using games because:
1) Games are developmentally appropriate for my littles. They are learning academic material through play, as well as working on turn taking and social skills.
2) They are great for homework. Games allow parents to see what skills students are working on at school. They are often short bursts of practice that also allow for family time.
3) Games are perfect for center activities. They can be easily differentiated to address the needs of various groups of students. In fact, most of my games address at least 2 skill levels. This way, groups of students working on different skills can even play the same game!
4) They are FUN! The students are having a blast AND learning at the same time. Everyone loves games!
MATH GAME: ADDITION, SUBTRACTION, & MULTIPLICATION
Here's my latest game, an apple-themed math game created just for the hop! It has three levels of cards to practice addition, subtraction, and multiplication. Two of my own little ones played it today. My son (kindergarten) worked on addition while my daughter (first grade) did subtraction. It's great that they can play the same game and yet focus on different skills.
