Last week I was so lucky. I was able to spend 2 days with teachers in Pennsylvania! I attended the PCTM 2017 conference and shared SUM OF WHICH with the teachers. We also spent some time playing SO YOU THINK YOU CAN ADD, IT's IMPOSSIBLE ADDITION, and ODDS OR EVENS. Everyone seemed to enjoy all the games and I know I enjoyed sharing. Pennsylvania sure has a great bunch of teachers!
You may have noticed a game named above that was unfamiliar to you; ODDS OR EVENS. That's because just 10 days ago that game was created. AND....I did not create it, my 8 year old granddaughter, Brynn created this game!! Impressive, huh?
The best thing is, you can play this game with the tiles from any SUM OF WHICH set. If you have the game and I missed you when sending out the update, please let me know and I will send you the directions. It’s a great game for practicing composing odd or even numbers. It was wonderful to see Brynn discover a “short cut” after playing just a few times. What a great way to get a child exploring number theory.
Presently, SUM OF WHICH is 100 is heading to press. It should be available by the end of this month. Stay tuned.
As always, please follow me on facebook and twitter. Always something new coming out!
I have been an educator for more than 20 years. I firmly believe that students must UNDERSTAND, not memorize.
