As many teachers are moving towards classrooms with less paper, these types of resources for computer math centers or even whole class participation is a great alternative. We are planning to create a larger collection of math games to be used on your interactive whiteboard or at student computers. The PowerPoints will cover a wide range of math skills so that you have an interactive option at your disposal when you introduce a new skill or concept or when you need your students to practice.
Set this up on your student computers for morning practice or during math centers. Be sure to put scratch paper and pencils at the computers for students to work the problems if needed.
To use this with your whole class, give your students small white boards and dry erase markers. Display a slide with the problem, give students time to work the problem on their dry erase boards, then begin clicking on answers one by one. Students can self check and get excited as they see that their answers match the correct answers on the PowerPoint presentation.
This game focuses on beginning fourth grade number sense skills. Correct answers are praised with a Nice Work slide!
To play, students need to click on the “Click Here to Start” link and they will be taken to the first problem. When a problem is answered correctly, they will receive slide giving them some praise. Students click on the wording and are taken to the next problem. Students must click on the actual text for the slides to correctly work.
When students answer a problem incorrectly, they will reach a “Try Again” slide and will need to click on the words to be taken back to the original problem to try again.
The game is created so that the final slide is linked to return to the first slide.
