Playing with mathematics.

Here are some games to motivate students with mathematics.

1. Addition using LEGO. 

2 tens and 6 units + 1 ten and 5 units...

= 3 tens and 11 units

then, we group the units: 4 tens and 1 unit.

2. Paper fortune teller + dice.

We write multiplications on the fotune teller paper and roll the dice...

3. Plastic cups. 

They are perfect to represent HUNDREDS, TENS and UNITS. 

4. Mental calculation.

I use popsicle sticks to match a pair of students...
I say a number, then roll the dice and we add it or substract it. 
The fastest student passes to the next round.
