Follow the Trail Swap & Giveaway!

Are you up for an adventure this week?  A number of fellow intermediate teacher-bloggers have joined to provide you with blog-hopping fun this last week of January.  Perhaps snow covers the ground outside where you are reading this from, making a real outdoor hike out of the we thought we would offer you a trail to "hike along" from the comfort of your couch!

Back in December, I was partnered with Jennifer from Teaching to Inspire in 5th! You have no idea how excited I was when I found out she was my partner! Jennifer and I checked out the resources available at one another's TpT stores, and then picked one that we wanted to use in our classroom in January.  (How fun is that?!)    It didn't take me long to choose my resource!  Her Base Ten Roll and Answer Math Centers resource would work perfectly with the skills we were working on in Math.

We were working on division when we came back from break and needed some review.  I used the division game from Jennifer's Roll and Math Center whole group.  I wanted to model how to use the game first before having my students play it on their own.

I put the Roll sheet up on the Smartboard and had team members take turns rolling the dice.  Everyone at the team solved the problem corresponding to number rolled.  This worked really well for my students and I was able to walk around and monitor their work.

Later in the week I used the Rounding Roll sheet for morning work using the same procedures.  The only difference was that students rolled their own dice and completed work on their own.  I can't wait to use more of Jennifer's Roll and Answer Math Games!

Now, to help with your exercise for the day, here's what you need to know about our hike and giveaway!
