~~~ Kid Tested—Educator approved: The feedback from teachers across the country and my fellow teachers at school, who use these grade-level interactive sets of task and game cards, state that kids are engaged and enthused; that the students are focused on the screen, calculating the problems, helping one another with the answers, laughing at the images and animations, and most of all – TALKING OUT LOUD ABOUT MATH.

We call it the “WOW” factor! ~~~

ACCOUNTABLE TALK: You will see your students become TEAM PLAYERS as they “talk it out” and problem-solve. They can pick an advisor, take a team vote or decide alone for the answers. The game provides immediate reinforcement of correct thinking about math.

The 20 word problems progressively develop the 10 “I can” statements and clarify the entire 2.OA.2.


COUNTING UP: I can think “1, 2, or 3 more than” to find this answer.
COUNTING DOWN: I can think “1, 2, or 3 less than” to find this answer.
DOUBLES: I can think “add or subtract the same number” to find this answer.
NEAR DOUBLES: I can think “double the number and add 1 or 2” to find this answer.
NIFTY NINES: I can think “nifty nines” to find this answer.
ALMOST NEIGHBORS: I can think “take 1 from the larger and give 1 to the smaller” to find this answer.
TEN TO TEENS: I can think “ten to teens” to find this answer.
MAKE TENS: I can think “make 10 by adding to 8 or 9 and make it easy” to find this answer.
