My kiddos can always use practice with basic skills, and adding 3 numbers (really adding in general) is one of those basic skills that they could use practice with. This game will give my students the chance to not only practice adding, but also the chance to use the strategies they've learned. AND, it's seasonal as St. Patrick's Day is next weekend. These days we'll take it however we can get it. ;-)
To play, students will face a partner. He/she will roll a die 3 times and record the numbers rolled on the shamrock leaves. He/she will use the addition strategies we've learned to find the sum. The student will write the sum on the clover's leaves, and he/she will fill out the number sentence below. Whoever has the greater sum can put a star/smiley face next to his/her clover. If you can use the game, feel free to click the picture to download, and if you are able to, please leave me some bloggy love. :-) Happy Friday!!!
