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.
