let the chaos begin...

state testing starts tomorrow!  (cue scary music here) i will be watching my kids test for three hours starting wednesday and when that is done i will be having a staring contest with those not testing for three hours.

we have to play educational games if we are not teaching and honestly sometimes my kids need a break.  what would you do?  any suggestions?

My students love playing SKUNK. I also have some number logic problems where you give one clue at a time and students try and guess the missing number. Could they do something with manipulatives? I did learning stations last week using tangrams and pentominoes and they LOVED them!

what is skunk? I am sure they can do anything with math but the question is can I? :)

In the past years I have always set up a bracket (march madness) for Multiplication War. All you need is a deck of playing cards for each pair of students. The students flip over a single card and say the product of the two numbers. Who ever says the correct product first wins the cards. Person who wins all the cards (or has the most after a period of time) is the winner! My kids love this game!
