When we came back from Christmas break, I was looking for more engaging ways to assess my students in math. While lesson planning one day, I was staring at a Twister game brainstorming different ways I could bring it into the classroom.
After much thought and digging through my classroom supplies and resources, I created a variety of math questions that aligned with the standards we have worked on. The procedure is simple, we play the game as normal, but I create different problems on white, sticky labels--which are then placed on the colored dots.
I change the labels every week (because Twister Thursday is our review day) for variety, but they include basic addition/subtraction problems, word problems, flip-flops, best friends of 10, I even draw tens and ones cubes for students to tell me its' numerical value, shapes, fractions and so much more! It is a lot of fun and a super easy way to check-in with how my students are doing! The best part is, my students are actively engaged--laughing and smiling--the entire time!
So for all those that have been asking, Twister away!
