Students worked together in math pairs to play the game "Roll and Record." Students were given a recording sheet and a die. They took turns rolling the die. Whatever number the die landed on, the student identified the number and recorded the number on their sheet in the correct number column. Some students were able to quickly identify the number of dots on the die and others had to count the dots. On the recording sheet, some students were able to recognize the numbers and others needed help finding the correct number. Math games are a great way for students to work together, and also learn and practice skills in a fun, hands-on approach. Students will play many different games throughout the school year. These games also allow for challenging all of the different level of learners.
