Rkboard Connections: 5 Math Games Every Classroom Needs to Play
Guest post by Leigh Langton Hey guys! It's Leigh from The Applicious Teacher! I am super excited to be blogging at Corkboard Connections today. I'm sharing a practice that I use to help increase my students' engagement and number sense during my math block. Do you play games in your classroom? Wait... what?! As a third grade teacher, I know how limited our time can be, so I am here to share with you 5 math games you should take the time to play this year! This game can be played in a k-5 classroom. Here's how to play... The idea is simple, but can be modified for your students. Other Variations Students sit down on a certain multiples (like the multiples of 7) Students don't say the multiple. This paper and pencil game works well in second to fifth grade classrooms and can be played by teams of students (like boys against girls) or in pairs. To play, students take turns rolling the dice. I love how the kids start to form a strategy for what numbers they want to roll next. Guess My Number

Mathematics The Common Core State Standards call for students to engage in rigorous content work, developing both conceptual and procedural understandings of mathematics and applying their understanding to solve authentic problems. In order for all students to develop this in-depth knowledge of mathematics, teachers must teach ambitiously. Our vision of ambitious mathematics instruction is guided by a set of principles about children and the work of teaching. These include viewing children as sense-makers and knowing students as individuals and learners. Teachers must provide all students with equitable access to rigorous academic work and be responsive to the requirements of the school environment while at the same time working to improve schools as institutions in a democracy.

With the recent changes to common core and PARCC testing, I found myself at a loss for how I was going to get my students to write in math class. Math is just numbers and symbols right?

Math Game: Target Number July 15, 2014 This game is from Mr. Bailey, one of my mentor teachers from my credential days. I still remember him teaching it to me during one of our lunch breaks, with his hand full of dice. I was skeptical at first, because I had never really played “math games,” but then I started to really get into it! Class Dojo! Have you guys heard of Class Dojo? It is the most amazing classroom management tool!! If you have a Promethean Board, Smartboard, or Projector, you can set this up from your computer and display it as the day goes on! This is how it looks once you start giving out points! It's visual and it's freakin' awesome! Anytime you give out a point, it dings!

Minecraft Multiplication Practice - Christy's Houseful of Chaos Are you looking for ways to convince your children to practice their multiplication facts? There are many places to get minecraft flashcards with random minecraft pictures and random multiplication facts, but I wanted a way in which to give my seven year old more practice with the multiplication that is integral to minecraft itself. I decided to work on just the multiples of four and six and I devised both some instructions for him to work through on the computer and a set of cards to play with at the kitchen table. Download the cards here: minecraftmemorymatchcards The sets are as follows:
