Hurry...Let's Do Some Math!

In the beginning of the year, we all know that skills can be all over the place {especially in first grade!} Some kids are experts at counting, while others have trouble even holding their pencil! 
To capitalize on collaboration {and peer help!}, we play “Hurry to ____!” a lot in these beginning weeks! 

The basic concept is to fill up your number chart before any other team.  To play, first split your kids into groups of four or five.  Once you say go, each child takes a turn writing one number in a box, then passes it to the next child who writes one number in the box and so on. The kids must write their numbers correctly {no reversals!} so it’s definitely a challenge!  Our goal is to make it all the way to 120 over time!
It's fun to listen to the kids help each other out and cheer each other on!  Click here to snag a copy of this set of games!

Have an awesome week!
