UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed!
We have a winner!!
Comment #188 was:
We actually use many different Learning Resources products already,
so I was pretty excited to have a NEW item in our collection!
And I even got to choose which one!
Can you guess what I picked?
(Ya’ll know about my math fact troubles lately right?)
I chose a game called, “POP for Addition and Subtraction”
The suggested age level for this game is 6-8
and it retails for $9.99
It’s cute, It’s colorful,
and it’s helping my kiddos to learn (and relearn) those evasive math facts.
Like I mentioned last week,
we are hitting the math facts pretty hard around here.
So I thought it would be nice to change it up with a math fact game,
and seriously, a little friendly competition goes a long ways around here.
Not to mention that it’s fun to play!
Here’s the deal:
The game includes a spinner and an assortment of math fact gumballs.
On each turn, your child spins the spinner
Then draws the appropriate amount of gumballs from the “gumball machine” (i.e. box)
In order to keep the gumballs children have to say the answer to the math fact printed on the gumball.
If they get the answer correct, they keep the gumball in their pile.
If they don’t get it correct, the gumball goes back into the box.
If they draw a “POP” gumball, all of their accumulated math facts go back into the box.
(the POP gumball is now out of play).
The game continues until all gumballs have been collected.
They are then counted and a winner is declared.
Everything is stored in the box, making it simple to store and easy to use.
(it would totally fit in a stocking if you’re looking for ways to stretch that homeschool budget!)
There are two levels of game play and the directions for both are printed on the back of the box
(how thoughtful is that
With 90 gumballs, this game is for any number of players.
You can play this game at home with one child or use it in your classroom.
Classroom Idea: Sometimes it’s fun to have an end of the day activity or ritual in your classroom….you know like a little fun treat children can look forward to.
I think it would be super cute for children to choose a gumball fact to solve on their way out and exchange it for a small treat, or sticker for their charts. You could even make the “POP” gumballs stand for something special. It would encourage children to be working on those math facts at home to show what they’ve learned each day.
I’m sure YOU can think of creative ways to use this game too!
