I adapted this game from Ocean'sOf First Grade Fun’s “Race to 50” game in order to accommodate the readiness levels of my kindergarten class. She was gracious enough to offer her game to teachers for free during Debbie Diller’s book study last summer, and I am doing the same here. In this place value game, there are three mats available for teachers to choose from depending on the readiness of their students. Each player will need their own mat and enough snap cubes to make either 30, 50 or 100. Players roll one dice if playing to 30 and 2 dice if playing to 50 or 100. Players take turns rolling, counting the number rolled and then adding that number of snap cubes to their playing mat. When they have 10 cubes on their ‘ones’ section, they make them into a tens rod and move them to the ‘tens’ column. The first person that gets to 30, or 50 or 100, is the winner

Thanks for looking,
I am a kindergarten teacher who feels strongly about the need to differentiated my instruction for the various learning styles, interests and levels of readiness of my students. My hope is to provide quality products that help other teachers to the same for their students.
