Long time, no blog! I was with my family in Williamsburg and Washington, D.C. for the week, and man, is it beautiful back there!! So many trees, and lots and lots of 300 year old bricks, as my daughter would say!
Here's a picture of our adventures!
So, here is a fun little game that my kiddos are obsessed with. It's basically an addition or subtraction graph called "Snail Race" and the object is to see which numbered snail can make it to the top or side first. The kids roll 2 dice, either add or subtract the numbers, depending on which version you give them, and then color in one square that corresponds with the answer on their dice and the snail on the paper. My kids LOVE this game! They are OBSESSED with finding out which snail makes it to the top first. To extend it, I have them write 1st place next to the snail that makes it to the end first, 2nd place next to the next snail, etc. so they have to keep rolling and adding or subtracting.
Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy!This game is especially great for your fast finishers who constantly need something to work on!
Lindsay made the addition version and I made the subtraction version. The addition version uses 6 sided dice and the subtraction one uses 10 sided dice. I will be making a more challenging version soon with larger numbers and will post it when I finish making it!
