I thought I knew what I wanted to do with it.

My students needed more

MATH PRACTICE!

The worksheets were NOT enough!

So…what to do? What to do?

I created…MONKEY MATH!

20 Common Core Standards

Practiced DAILY!

No Paper, no ink, no printing needed!

(After you make the MONKEY MATH task cards)

But….

What I initially thought ..

CHANGED!

I moved the wall, and made a game!

My kiddos LOVE a game!

The kiddos LOVE using their whiteboards! Moved MONKEY MATH to the wall!

Made MUST DO’s & MAY Do’s for the week.

Monkey Math is now a MUST DO!

The game:

Roll the dice. Write the number at the top of the page. Roll 2 dice. Write the number at the top of the page. After they have 4 numbers, they use their white boards to write the answers to the corresponding MONKEY MATH cards.

The dice only give them a number to choose from. When they get four choices, they answer them!

Monkey Math has 20 task cards.

So on Friday they can choose to do numbers higher than 12 ( two dice)…

Clear as mud? Sorry…new game we are inventing it as we go! 🙂

Working with partners!

THEY LOVE IT!

Dice, partners, white boards… MONKEY MATH!

WIN! WIN!

Here is my MATH board.

(Don’t look at the messy headphones..haven’t found a good home for them..YET!)

Just bought the magnetic place value pieces..AMAZON.. ( LOVE THEM )!

And so….we continue.

Monkey Math.

Math practice without the worksheets!

Enjoy!
