Thumbs Up for Math ... Plus a Freebie!

Hi, Teaching Friends!

Are you resting up this weekend for the Big Day coming up next week? Or maybe your school year is already well underway and you're taking this welcome break to catch your breath! Either way, let's celebrate with a little sale!

Partner games are a terrific way to keep your students focused on the task at hand, and also build some unexpected friendships. There are times that setting up random partners or even letting students choose their own partners are perfectly fine options. But most of the time, you call the plays.

*  You can match partners of equal ability.

*  You can arrange some spread between abilities so the slightly higher player can motivate and encourage his slightly lower opponent.

*  You can even use academic games for social purposes, mixing introverts and extroverts, or putting a kind encourager with a child who's having some trouble fitting in.

Here are three sets of math partner games, all on sale through Monday night at both Teachers Pay Teachers and Teachers Notebook. Each of the four sets includes ten Common Core-aligned games, perfect for use in math centers. There are also directions and materials for using the games as an active whole class review. Use the games as you come to the topics in your curriculum, for spiraled review throughout the year, and as a fun way to review for standardized testing. They're also a great activity for the end of the school year or the beginning of the next year, to review and informally assess.

Regularly $8 for each set of ten Common Core Games, this weekend they're 25% off!

Download the preview for any of the sets to get a free game!

Sorry that the images are a bit blurry here, but I want you to see the variety each set includes.

Would you like to try a free sample? (Oh my, that sounded an awful lot like I was offering you a chocolate!) With this sample set from my TpT game, you can get a better idea of how the games work and which skills are included at each grade level, K-2. Sorry, third grade teachers, revising this set to include you is on my to-do list.

Happy Teaching ... and have a wonderful weekend!
