Today Elijah and I played a math game for math time. It's a file folder game I made and it has been a big hit with him for math practice.
You can start at 0 and move to 100 for addition or you can start at 100 and move to 0 for subtraction. I have a 20 sided die that we role and add to whatever number we are on.
I have a collection of game pieces and today Elijah chose a turtle and I was a frog.
Elijah has to do the adding for everyone playing and I don't allow just counting that many spaces, he actually has to write the problem on a white board and find the answer.
See there is a face under all that hair!
