Winter Theme Multiplication Games

Winter Theme Multiplication Roll and Cover Printable Games

My daughter uses Teaching Textbooks 3 for math {which we LOVE} and is right in the middle of the multiplication section! Recently I shared the Christmas theme multiplication games I made for her and since we have now cleaned up all of our Christmas stuff I wanted a new set with a winter theme!

There are two different versions included, one that is easier, using one die, and one that is more difficult using 2 dice. We have been using the easier version for now since she is just learning.

How to Play:

Individually

Easier Version…Roll one die, multiply that number by the number on the page. Mark the answer. Play until all answers are covered.

Harder Version…Roll two die, add the numbers together and then multiply that number by the number on the page. Mark the answer. Play until all answers are covered.

More than 1 Player

Have more than one player? Play Bump! Have each player pick an item to mark with and each time they roll mark their answer with their specific marker. If the answer is already covered by another player you BUMP theirs off and replace it with yours! Play until all answers are covered and count up who has the most!

We use our Spielgaben rings to cover the answers, but you can use any small object!

My daughter uses Teaching Textbooks 3 for math {which we LOVE} and is right in the middle of the multiplication section! As we entered into our Christmas break, I wanted a fun way for her to keep the skills fresh, so I made some games!

We have been playing already and recently I shared this photo on Instagram here. My son is a sweet brother {most of the time} and offered to play with her. Good thing, this game can be played alone or with a partner.

Graphing with Spielgaben

Graphing with Spielgaben

{We were given the Spielgaben set to review and are honored to have them as a blog sponsor.}

We have had our Spielgaben set for years now and have grown with it. This year for 2nd grade, we are using Spielgaben as an extension of our math curriculum. Spielgaben is releasing a full math program soon and we were sent a preview file of PDFs for the 2nd grade curriculum. These are the worksheets you see in this post. They are not available yet but will be soon, follow along with us and I will let you know when you can get your hands on this new math program!

I incorporate Spielgaben into her daily work. I choose 1-3 worksheets from the math program per week and have her work on them independently {if possible} or with a bit of instruction with me. Then on Friday I gather the worksheets and we bring the concepts alive with the Spielgaben pieces. Below I will share a few of the worksheets we brought to life with Spielgaben this past month!

This past month I chose to focus on graphing skills with her. I chose a couple of worksheets in particular to bring to life with our Spielgaben set. This complemented her main math curriculum and was a fabulous review and time of teaching additional concepts!

First, we used the Spielgaben board and small dots to simply recreate one of our graphs. We did tons of comparing and discussed many aspects of the graph and the worksheet itself. This was all a great review for her.

Spielgaben -5618

Spielgaben -5624

 

This net worksheet presented a new graphing concept, by discussing the size of the images on a pictograph.  She had never thought about this and learned a lot!

Spielgaben -8224

 

After we went through the worksheet together, I recreated an example for her on the board. The one on the left is showing the ‘wrong’ way since the purple diamonds look like they have the most but actually the orange triangles have the most!  I then challenged her to use the same pieces in a different way to show a more accurate pictograph according to size. She struggled at first so I assisted to get her going and then it clicked!

Spielgaben -8227 Spielgaben -8234

Moments like that are why I love having Spielgaben as a part of our math curriculum!

 

After the lesson she begged to have some play time, so of course I said yes!

A cat, a bird, and a white dachshund {I thought it was a bunny}.

She loves her end of the week Spielgaben time, it has been a great addition to her math curriculum this year, providing great hands-on learning and review!

Continual Math Review with Spielgaben

Exploring 3D Shapes with Spielgaben

{We were given the Spielgaben set to review and are honored to have them as a blog sponsor.}

We have had our Spielgaben set for years now and have grown with it. This year for 2nd grade, we are using Spielgaben as an extension of our math curriculum. Spielgaben is releasing a full math program soon and we were sent a preview file of PDFs for the 2nd grade curriculum. These are the worksheets you see in this post.

We are finishing up our second month of school and I incorporate Spielgaben into her daily work. I choose 1-3 worksheets from the math program per week and have her work on them independently {if possible} or with a bit of instruction with me. Then on Friday I gather the worksheets and we bring the concepts alive with the Spielgaben pieces. Below I will share a few of the worksheets we brought to life with Spielgaben this past month!

Many of the concepts I chose this past month were all review for her. Continual review in math is very important, especially with concepts that aren’t necessarily exposed in natural life regularly.

Below you can see us reviewing 2 different worksheets she completed that week.  One featured positional words and one featured ordinal numbers. We have the Nature Guide PDF pulled up on our iPad, that’s what she has in front of her.

Spielgaben -5177

 

For fun, I had her choose two of the creatures from the worksheets to build so we could practice the positional words together. We found them in the play guide and she got to work!

Spielgaben -5179

We taped her creations together and used them to practice what she had learned and reviewed on the worksheet.

Spielgaben -5197

 

One of the other worksheets she did focused on features or 3 dimensional shapes. At the end of the week, we got her worksheet back out and I had her get all of the spheres, cylinders, and cubes she could find in our set and we used those!

Spielgaben -0202

 

Once she had them all, we tested her answers from the worksheet to see if the shapes rolled, slid, or stacked!

Spielgaben -0211

 

We sorted them all…

Spielgaben -0214

 

We also mixed them up and played a describing game. I described attributes one at a time until she guessed which shape I was thinking of.  She did the same for me!

Spielgaben -0217

 

She loves her end of the week Spielgaben time, it has been a great addition to her math curriculum this year, providing some great hands-on learning and review!
