Love allthe bump games

 

Esther Kang's curator insight, October 28, 2013 10:48 AM

This is a similar math board game that my mentor used for a math center recently.  But it is different that it has a twist to it.  I really like how students are able to bump their friends' marker off if they land on the same space, and that there are "locked spaces" if there are two of the same markers in one space.  This will engage students even more.

Palindromes for January

Palindromes for January | Seasonal Freebies for Teachers | Scoop.it

What do the word "sis" and the sentence "Madam, I'm Adam" have in common? Both are palindromes--words, phrases, and sentences with individual letters that sit in the same sequence whether they are read forward or backward. With January being the month named after the ancient Roman god whose two faces allowed him to look into the past and into the future, it seems a fitting time to entertain and challenge students with the back-and-forth palindrome concept. Your students will enjoy these word puzzles from Margaret Whisnant!
