Multiplication Review Winners and some updates!

I am SO tired today! I worked out with my personal trainer tonight and she changed things up! She was like," Oh, the past few times were for me to see what you can do and where you are at, now it's push time." I was nonstop.moving.the.whole.hour! I LOVE her and we are good friends. I have known her for 3 years now and I wouldn't ask for anyone else to help me train. She is an amazing woman! But man, I am SORE. I was dripping sweat in the first 5 minutes! I LOVE it though!

ANYWAYS... 

So today we did the multiplication game I created, and the kids just thought it was 
"SO COOL!"

As we were playing, I noticed some errors and also made some improvements! So I fixed the errors and made the improvements!

First change is when they land on 0, they lose ALL their points and start over! Also, they went around the game board more than once, since there was 23 questions. I added 1,000 point values to START and FINISH. So if they LAND on start or finish they get a point value. I think some kids went around 2 times, some 3. 


I also changed the recording sheet for better understanding! My kids were kinda confused!
I hope they do well on the test tomorrow.
After we finished the game we worked on our multiplication lapbooks!

I LOVE this free activity from homeschoolshare
The kids are begging for a division one. I think I may take a stab at making one:) 

So a few things to be on the lookout soon for that I am working on

-a division lap book
-main idea packet
-Edward Tulane Book Study
-Division Interactive notebook
-The Magician's Elephant book study
-Daily 5 activities
-new task cards

I am going to be a busy girl but I have a list very long I want to complete soon

  3. You are so creative, sweet, and generous! Too bad I've been having some computer issues and haven't been able to get online much. I'm bummed .... but I'll definitely have to pick this up in your store before we start multiplication. I plan on using your subtracting across zeros lesson tomorrow.

  4. You totally made me giggle...I misread your comment and thought you forgot who won...and I was going to tell you that was a symptom of getting older but you're too young for that!

    (And I commented on the previous post...lucky me!)

  6. I'll never be mad that you did a double post. That just means I'm doubly blessed and get to double comment. We are covered up in multiplication right now and this game will be the crowning jewel. Thanks so much for your generosity and giving heart.

  9. Hi Tonya,
    After seeing this game on your post the other night, I went and bought it right away with the sales going on because I thought it was so cool and I usually never win anything. It was a great purchase.
    Thanks,

  10. We are trying to get our grade four class to learn as many of the multiplication tables as possible. So many of them are lacking those skills. This game and that lap-book look like great ideas to inspire and encourage my students to learn their tables!
