Motivating Math Manipulatives and Games

My students need math manipulatives to make math motivational and fun. I will use these dice, cards, activities to create math games that meet the standards.

My Students

My students need dice and playing cards to play meaningful math games at home and school instead of doing pages and pages of worksheets.

When was the last time homework was fun or motivating?

It is in Ms. S's classroom. We play meaningful math games for our homework which builds number sense and fact fluency. We are in need of some basic supplies including dice and playing cards. The students in my room love learning about math. We keep math fun and meaningful in our classroom by playing awesome math games at school and at home. My students are very motivated by math games. The games in our room have made learning about math fun!

My Project

The dice and cards will provide my students with many different math games they will be able to play at school and at home. We have over 50 different games we are able to play with dice and cards starting with easier games in the beginning of the year and more advanced games during the end of the year.

I want my students to share the same love for math as I have.

Please consider supporting us and making an impact in a third graders life by making math meaningful and fun. Keep math motivating!
