Yo-Ho! Bring on the Pirate Games!

Hi, Teaching Friends!

Isn't it amazing how adding a bit of extra fun with a theme can help kids stay on task longer? Whether it's dinosaurs or dump trucks, superheroes or silly faces, graphics simply add more fun to the "fun and games"! And, of course, the longer your students play, the greater the potential for learning!

Well, yo-ho! Your kiddos will love the theme of this game set- it's PIRATES!! While they have fun with the cute pirates, parrot, treasure map and more from KPM Doodles, they'll also be getting lots of practice with adding and subtracting multiples of ten.

Take a peek!

Here's a closer look at one of the activities. There are two versions of this game, one for partners and the other to be played by just one student. There are four sets of 24 cards each that can be used with each of these versions:

            Adding Ten
            Subtracting Ten
            Adding and Subtracting Multiples of Ten
            Adding and Subtracting Multiples of Ten, Commutative Property

So actually, that's eight game combinations just with "Tell Me, Pirate, Is It True?".

The set also includes these games: Walk the Plank (68 cards for adding and subtracting ten from two-digit numbers), Arrrr! The Seas Be Full of Pirates! (a 120 chart board game where students roll and add two dice, moving back 10 or ahead 20 based on their roll), and Shiver Me Timbers! It's Time for Plus Ten! (a four-in-a-row game for 1.NBT.5). There's also a Pirates' Treasure Hundred Chart for students who may need extra support.

You can get more details here at Teachers Pay Teachers.

Here's a pirate freebie to give you a taste of what the other games are like!

With this pirate game, your students will have all the fun they always do when they play "I Have..., Who Has...?", PLUS they'll get some great practice with adding and subtracting multiples of ten, PLUS (and this is a BIG plus!) they'll get to TALK LIKE PIRATES! Yo- HO!!

  7. Yes, Mary! Another goofy holiday gone wild! Seriously, I guess we teachers would be crazy to let a day with such appeal to our students go by without trying to benefit from it!
