I have taught grades 1, 2, 3, 4 and now some 5 over the past 25 years. Although First Grade which is where my heart lives, I am continuing my adventure with 5th graders who need some extra help, as well as part-time Literacy Coach this year. Wish me luck! I am so glad you stopped by!
Here's a beginning addition game to practice the property of zero. Add Zero Cover Up is a partner game using the game board, a die, and two-sided counters. Students take turns rolling a die, add zero to that number, and cover one of the answers on the game board. If the answer is already covered, the student loses a turn. Play until all spaces are covered. The winner has the most spaces covered.
