Playing Math Games

I enjoyed learning about managing and promoting math games from the math coach today. The coach gave a well-paced, developmentally-appropriate mathematical introduction to the game. We matched students with like ability, and let them play. We all roamed the room helping partners play the game and noticing how the game playing connected to each students' skills and interests. I will definitely play this game again, and scaffold it a bit more for the many different areas of need and interest in the class. I also really liked the way this game fostered the acquisition of math vocabulary in an engaging way.
