My kiddos are having a blast with arrays! I am impressed with how well they have picked it up! Their pretests were horrible but I am sure their post tests will be superb!
Today we played a game I made called
Taste the Arrays!
I gave each student two fun size bags of Skittles, this way they would have at least 25. They also got a recording mat I made and a paper towel.
I displayed on the board an array sentence and the students had to use their skittles to make the array!
Then after everyone made their array, I showed the answer on the board.
The kids LOVED it!
When we finished going through all the sentences, we went back through and made repeated addition sentences for each one! And of course they got to eat them!
Is this something you would like to do with your class? Leave a comment below and I will pick a winner Wednesday night Hawaii time!
Hope your Monday was marvelous:)
