Last Thursday our school hosted a Math Night for our parents. They were invited to come and learn about simple games they could play with their kids and then we gave them the opportunity to have a "Make it Take it" time so they could actually take home some of the games that were discussed.
We decided to share how easy it is to use dice as a learning tool so we shared the simple game of Roll Say, Keep, only we changed it to Roll, Count, Keep. We included a dice and everything they would need to play this game at home. We received a very positive response from the parents that took advantage of this opportunity. I have included the document that we provided in hopes that you may be able to use it the same way or in your classroom. We also shared that they could use the cards to play memory also!! :) My wonderful colleague who I have posted about before - Ms. Jayme - was the creator of this gem. Enjoy!!
