Writing Work Station for March... and a new math game!

After a visit with the dentist, I was able to finish a few things. Yippee!

 Here is a game I thought up.  It is a bit like solitaire.  In this game the students will sequentially stack their number cards.  The first one to complete 3 stacks will be the winner.

I am introducing this as a 1-10 stack and 11-20 stack, but I am thinking about making a skip counting (2, 5, 10) version?   Thoughts?

I played a version of this with a few students (just the numbers without the cute graphics).  They loved it! I hope they love the St. Patrick's Day graphics.


  1. I've been looking forward to the March Writing Packet! Thanks!

  2. I LOVE the idea for the game. Have your kids played it yet? I am not sure if my class can do this skill this way, so I am curious. I am always up for challenging them as they always surprise me! hehe

    LOVE the background for the cover as well.

    1. Hi Mary, I played this game with a few of my kids (but it didn't have the cute graphics). They had no problem, but they were my proficient kids. I am going to try this with more a variety tomorrow. I suspect they will not have a problem. I think I will keep it in my small group for a while. I'm excited!

  3. I absolutely love your writing center. I think I might use some of the vocab ulary cards as a write/read the room. Thank you so much for sharing your ideas with others.

  4. Ooooh......Can't wait to get my hands on it! Thanks so much!
