I have a spot in our classroom with math games we’ve played previously. That way, if kids have some extra time during math, they can grab a game to play and review skills. Last week I finally updated what games are there. There are only three now, instead of eight or nine. But they’re games we’ve only played once or twice because I hadn’t gotten organized to replace the previous games.
My third graders were over the moon this afternoon. Every single copy of each of the three games was in use during the last ten minutes of our day. I’m just sorry we didn’t have more time!
