GAMES GRAB STUDENTS’ ATTENTION AND ACTIVELY ENGAGE THEM.
I find that because students really enjoy playing games, math bump games are a perfect way to focus their attention and actively immerse them in math skills and concepts.
WHEN STUDENTS ARE PLAYING MATH GAMES, THEY ARE LEARNING.
Through math games, children learn much more than math skills. They also learn “life rules”. They learn about taking turns, fairness, losing, and winning. How do you lose graciously? How do you win graciously?
They learn how to think and apply strategies – all in a non-threatening way. They are more willing to take risks and think out of the box when playing math games.
STUDENTS BECOME MORE STRATEGIC AND MORE CONFIDENT.
When students figure out strategies and think logically, they feel smart. And when they feel smart, they will be. Their problem-solving skills improve as well as their attitudes!
Because I believe that learning should be fun and engaging, you can find many math games in my TpT store. Since I am writing this in April, I want to give you access to these free Spring bump games that you can implement right now to keep your kids focused and motivated as Spring Fever hits. Bump games are always a kid favorite and these free math games will increase engagement and help to keep your kids motivated through the Spring and beyond.
There are a multiplication game and an addition game in this freebie. I hope that you’ll enjoy using these in your classroom.
And. . . if your administrator ever asks why you are playing games in your classroom, be sure to refer her to this post! 😉
And as always,
