Students work with partners and take turns tossing two apple seeds (or any kid of counters) onto the game board. They write an addition sentence to match the numbers they covered on the game board. If need be, students can draw circle drawings to help them solve the problem. Students continue until their data sheet is complete. To "gear up" this activity, make the numbers larger on the game board or change the game to multiplication. I like the students to use the math vocabulary as they write their addition sentence so that is why you see addend, plus, equal, and sum on their data sheet. As they are working, I roam around the room asking students to explain their thinking using the vocabulary words. Learning that is fun for sure!
