Who doesn't LOVE those sock monkeys?

I went into a couple of fifth grade classrooms to teach the students how to play some partner games to practice some  multiplication facts which seems to be a weakness this year.

I taught them how to play BUMP! There are tons of BUMP games out there...too many to count.

I used SunnyDays Back to School version which I absolutely love and so did they. She has a lot of thematic versions of this math game. It was a GREAT intro for them! Her games use a regular die and practice the basic facts you can get from multiplying the numbers 1-6. If you haven't checked out her games and activities, be sure to click over and check them out.

By the way, my First Graders LOVED the addition versions too!

I enjoyed the experience because I now know for sure that 5th graders LOVE playing games just as much as the little guys do!

Now I need to BUMP it up another level so that the students can do a lot more multiplying and teachers can do a lot more differentiating!

Thus is born...

Each game board practices a different fact from 1- 10. Students use a 10-sided die or playing cards without the face cards.

I also included printables to practice each set of facts.

The entire game sets are now posted in my Teacher Pay Teachers store.

For those going back tomorrow...

                HAVE A GREAT FIRST DAY!
