Clothespin Activities (using categories of information)

To prepare this activity print the answer key/ answer page onto an address label sticker page and the game board on card stock or construction paper. Then, stick the answers onto the clothespins.

Answers could be written or stuck on the back of the game board if self-check is desired.

When you make math games, beginning players could use the questions with answers, then switch to just answers as they memorize problems. Eventually, players will clip the answers to the correct problems/ questions.

You can make these yourself or these example activities are sold for $1 (for two fish shapes studying plurals and this parallelogram, all three) at Currclick.

Stephanie's Board Games (using Sets of information)

In Stephanie's board game rules, one turn for each player equals one round, five rounds equal one complete game. Players earn tokens for each round they win.

We have a game that shows six ways to prove a multiplication problem. Parts of this game show:

1x2 = 2 can be proven with:

  • 1x2 = 2
  • 2x1 = 2
  • One set of 2 = 2
  • 1 +1 = 2
  • 2 ÷ 2 = 1
  • 2 ÷ 1 = 2

I used this game at the beginning of my third grade class using A Beka Curriculum. This game is in the Multiplication Games Level I set ($7 for 15 games)

Category Board Game

In the Category Board Game players take turns drawing a card or spinning a spinner then moving to the correct space. I use the # of the quotient /answer in division, # of the product in multiplication, or match colors, vowels, anything that has limited (3-8) answers.

 

This board game is our simplest board game and can be printed on computer paper... reprint as needed. Also, the spinner could be printed on regular paper if you use a clear plastic spinner on top of your printed spinner. Card Stock is required for printing cards.

 

I normally offer a free clear spinner with a $25 purchase from my site. For the rest of this month, May 2013, I will send you one for a $14 purchase. Send me your “buyer's name” and physical address in an email to chris@ teachwithgames.com for this offer.
