Don't Get Zapped! addition version


                                                   

I combined the sweet frog idea from makinglearningfun to create a container with the Kaboom addidition game from Teacher Tipsters to create my "Don't Get Zapped!" Game...





Our local Taget Dollar Spot has plastic jumbo craft sticks 30 for a dollar.  (But you could just as easily use the wooden jumbo craft sticks.)   I created labels to cut apart and attach to the one end of the craft stick.  The kids pull out a stick and either solve the problem to keep it or follow the direction on the stick...Take a stick from another player, Take an Extra Turn, or Zapped! Put all your sticks back.


We'll see how little finger do at getting the sticks in and out of the opening...I may have them simply take the top off for easier access.


Enjoy!
Heidi

    Thanks!

  3. I LOVE this idea! Please tell me what label number you used. I had template #5160 on hand with 30 per sheet and tried printing, but that wasn't it!

  4. It's actually AVERY #8160. Then I cut them in half to fit the sticks.
    Hope this helps.

  12. I'm going to use this as multiplication review. Could also be used to review mathematical vocabulary for upper grade levels or even for solving equations.

    So cool, LOVE IT!

  14. I teach middle school and I think this would be a great idea to use for integer operations with my 7th graders. Thanks for sharing the idea!

  15. Is there another way to access these? It won't work on my computer either and I could use these for my 3rd graders that are low! :) Thanks

  17. Love this idea! I am going to create versions of this for my 6th grade math students!

  18. Love this game, wondering if you have a blank format one with just the frogs on it so I could insert sight words on them?

    1. Sadly, when my computer crashed, the original file was lost. A sight word game would be great. Microsoft Office is where I got the template to make this game...and the frogs just came from a search on google for images. Thanks!

  19. Thank you, Heidi! This will be a great addition to our fact practice!
