I also hit the jackpot at a local library. They had a few shelves of used books and they were running a sale all the books you could fit in a bag for $1. Look at what I was able to fit in my bag!
28 books for $1
They are going to have a big book sale in a couple of weeks and I am going to stock up again $5 for a box! I cannot wait! (yes, I have a slight obsession with books!)
Ok, now for a fun simple math game. I am linking up with Ideas by Jivey for her Wednesday Workshop. This weeks theme: Math Partner Games.
My game is pretty simple...
All you need is two decks of cards, some kind of game board and playing pieces. Each students gets a deck of cards (you can remove the face cards if you want or they can be higher number values) and places their marker on start. Each student draws two cards, they can either add, subtract or multiply the numbers on the cards. The goal is they want the highest number. If they have the highest number they move their piece forward. You can isolate just having the students practice their addition, subtraction or multiplication facts. It is a super easy game to set up and get started with students. My fifth graders even love it!
One last thing...
I have teamed up with Michaela from The Center Based Classroom. She is holding an amazing fundraiser for the people in Boston. If you donate $20 you can choose form two amazing product bundles (one for K-2 or one for 3-6). 100% of your donation with goes to the victims of the Boston bombings. I encourage you to donate to this great cause.
