SUM OF WHICH used to be a game that came with directions for 4 games to play. I am excited to share, as of today, SUM OF WHICH will come with the directions for FIVE games to play. MAKE IT COUNT is game number 5! That means you pay for SUM OF WHICH, and you get everything you need and the directions for playing SUM OF WHICH, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN ADD, IT's IMPOSSIBLE, ODDS OR EVENS, and now MAKE IT COUNT.
And how about using a Number Talk to get students excited and thinking about playing one of the many games. Try this. Ask your students to use any of the following numbers 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12 to make a sum of 20. They may not use any of the numbers twice in any of the addition sentences but may use them in as many sentences as they wish. For example, I cannot say 2 + 2 + 2 + 12 because the 2 is only listed once.
However, I can use the 2 with the 6 and 12 and then use the 12 again with 12 and 8. Although the 12 is used twice, it is used in two separate sentences.
Give it a try. Get your students talking and then play one of the FIVE games you can play with SUM OF WHICH. Then, please let me know how it goes. I love to see pictures of the students engaged in thier learning and hearing about their excitement.
