Another Freebie!! I have been looking through all the information about the Math Daily 5 on the Sisters website, I came across this game called Bump! that is a fact practice game. Basically the rules are as follows:
Player one rolls two dice and adds the numbers up and then places one of their markers on the correct circle. Then player two does the same thing. Both players can have a marker on a spot, but when one player gets the same sum twice they get to Bump! the other player off the circle and claim it. The player who ends up with the most claimed circles wins the game.

Well I had to make some cute game boards for this game and wanted to share them with all of you! So here is one of the ones I made. Hope you enjoy!!

Math Daily 5

Ok friends...I kept holding out hope that the Sisters would be posting more about this at their website, but not I am asking all of you to help me out...
How many of you do a sort of Math Workshop/Math Daily 5 in your classrooms already? What does it look like? I want to do this in my room this year and need some great ideas. I am counting on my bloggy friends for all sorts of clever ideas and helpful hints.
