Play to Learn: Gomoku on a 100 Chart

I have created a series of math games I use for stations in my upper elementary classroom.  Recently I updated my 100 chart to make the squares bigger.  (We were running out of dry erase markers, and I wanted to use the plastic cubes as reusable markers.)

The game you see above is called Gomoku.  Students try to get five squares in a row: horizontally, vertically, or diagonally.  To claim a square in this version, they must write an equation that equals the number on that square.

To download the 100 chart with larger squares and access all my free Gomoku games, click here.

Free Template -- Ticket out the Door

I like the idea of exit slips, those short assessments at the end of the lesson to make sure the students understand the point of of the lesson.  Because my students are with me all day, instead of waiting until the end of a work session, I had students answer one question at the beginning.  As they worked independently or at stations, I could easily see who answered correctly and who needed assistance.

FYI: I'm not a fan of permanent ability groups.  I like giving short assessments like these and addressing skills as they come up.  Different students have different needs on different days.

Behavior Intervention: Having a Buddy Class

In our school, we have the buddy system when it comes to student discipline.  Teachers and students know that a student may be asked to work in a neighbor's classroom to refocus and and then return to class.  One year too facilitate, I developed a slip that could be quickly filled out and sent with the student to the neighboring class.

Apple Dot Marker Freebie

Sometimes Simple Activities are the Best. 

This versatile free apple download comes in color and BW.  The color versions are great for laminating-use for dry-erase, play dough or bingo chips. I use the B&W for dot markers or we just have fun coloring.

 I  love to have my kids tweeze red, yellow and green pom-poms to fill the apples. Who doesn't love those fuzzy pom-poms? Great fine motor, and an opportunity for talking about colors and counting.

There is a 10-apple and a 20-apple version for you, designed to help with data-taking in small group instruction. Give one color for correct, one color for "fix-it"! You'll be able to see at a glance how many questions the student got correct.

I hope you enjoy it. If you download, I would love to hear how you have used this in your classroom or therapy room. Happy Fall!
