Math Munchers Math Game on TpT!
While making the cute little googly-eye pointers in my last post, I was inspired to create "Math Munchers". Just like their gator counterparts, they like to devour large numbers. In this case, furry-monster-pom-pom counters or "arrays". My third grade peanuts still struggle with multiplication fact fluency a bit and rely a little on arrays to solve problems. This game allows students to create an array to solve a problem and then compare their product with their partner's practice comparing numbers too! It is a double duty game, and it's cute! I have created a game that has two versions: one for multiplication and one for addition. Instead of building an array, students could use the pom poms as counters for the addition game. Both sets of directions are included. You can check this 9-pager out HERE! If anyone picks up a copy, please let me know what you think. :)
