There are two things I know I want to incorporate in my classroom next year....Boggle (which most of you are familiar with) and Add It Up (I found the idea on Pinterest, which led me to Live Laugh and Love to Learn)
I LOVE how it is set up, I even love how cute it is...but it doesn't match my classroom. So of course I had to change it up a little bit. I also like how the number circles are written on and not premade so that you don't have to make so many and can change it up a little bit.
My thoughts are to make one of the add it up center as well as a boggle center in my room to use when work is completed or even as an independent center...we will see how all works in my class.
As some of you know I am also going to be teaching 5th grade next year, so I am thinking I will start with the simple version of boggle (directions are attached for both versions) and then move up to the "normal" version of boggle. Then for add it up I will start with the add it up game (directions attached), but using three and four digit numbers. Then...this is where I am stuck, so any ideas will be greatly appreciated, I want to make it a little more difficult. Meaning maybe have them multiply two and three digit numbers (but would need a cute name), again I haven't taught 5th grade in a long time so I am not sure what else I would want to do. And of course I would make new title labels and directions then share them with you all. I am just needing ideas....so please share!
Stay tuned for pictures of the games in my own classroom.
Lastly don't forget to head over and like Classroom DIY. I am being featured tomorrow with a cute DIY classroom game! There are a TON of great ideas for you to make, you won't be disappointed!
