Climb to 100

We changed a game and made it our own in my Walk to Maths class and they love it so much, I thought I would share.

I play with a child in the class to start with, all the girls always want me to win, the boys never barack for me! Here it is:

Children have a whiteboard each and whiteboard marker and a deck of cards between the two of them. Then turning over one card at a time, taking turns, children add up the cards as they go as they "Climb" their way to 100. They can use the whiteboard to record their numbers as they go so they don't forget! My class love it! They happily play for 15 minutes!


There is a HUGE sale coming up on Teachers Pay Teachers, so make sure you get your wish list full ready for the big spend on Monday and Tuesday (US time). More details to come on the weekend! I have just posted a HUGE science booklet (at the moment 15 experiments but I'm hoping to increase it!) Here is a sneak peak.... It also includes posters and the Scientific Process.


P.S. Happy Thanksgiving everyone in the US for tomorrow. This is the time of year when I really miss my US family - Thanksgiving feels bigger than Christmas some years! This year my Grandma is sick so unfortunately no yummy Grandma made pies for my family. Lucky we all had pie making lessons! Enjoy the food, festivities, family and fun that comes with the day. xx

  1. Your Science packet looks great Alison, my kiddos love playing that game too. I change it up a bit and get them to draw a card from a 20-100 card from a set and then they have to add to a range of different numbers or start from 100 and take away. Looks like your kiddos had fun.
