Have I mentioned I like games?

By on February 8, 2012 in Uncategorized with 2 Comments

As a teacher, I always spent TONS of times creating games and other hands on activities that my students could do to help them learn without always doing worksheets.  While there is a time and a place for worksheets, too often they are the easy and go-to solution for teachers looking to have time to meet with small groups.  I hope to share many easy activities teachers can use instead without breaking the bank.  This game is called Left-Right-Learn.  It’s a partner game that can be played in centers or as a whole class.  I have two versions.  The first one does only the multiplication facts to 5.

The second version does the facts through 10.  This version also offers 4 game boards and 54 facts for each board.  This way, if students randomly grab a board, they will have practice with a variety of problems.  And by keeping the cards to 54 per game, they have more repetitive practice with each problem.

When I think of this game, I think of line dancing.  I visualize stepping to the left, criss-crossing to the right, back to the left, and so on.  I’m not sure why but it makes me want to move! :)  Click on the picture to go to my TpT store.  Thank you to Graphics from the Pond for the borders!
