Bowling for Facts!



Today during math stations, the kids went bowling for addition facts...without the real pins and bowling balls, but still pretty fun! This is a partner game, and each player gets a bowling mat and a handful of colorful chips (I call them mini bowling balls). The players take turns rolling 2 dice, then adding the sums of the numbers rolled. When one of the players rolls a number found on one of their pins, they "knock over" that pin with a chip. The first player to have all pins knocked over wins the game!

If you'd like a copy of this game, there is a precious, new and improved version uploaded to Teachers pay Teachers for $1.00!  It includes directions and 10 game mats--perfect for math stations!!!

Would LOVE a copy! That is darling! My kids would LOVE it!! My email is thefirstgradeparade@gmail.com

Speaking of PDF...if you're creating anything on Word or Power Point, you should have the option of saving as a PDF file. If not, you can Google "PDF converter" & lots of sites will pop up that will convert your documents to PDF for free :)

Then you can find a hosting site like keepandshare.com to upload all your PDF files. The hosting site will give you a URL link to your document and you can use that to create a hyperlink on your blog :)

Wow...totally confused myself. Clear as mud, right?!

Thanks for sharing!!

I would like a copy if you have time to send it to me. I know how busy teaching can be for teachers. I was a parent that volunteer in the classroom regularly and had a chance to become friends with two of my son's past elementary teachers. They work very hard and I'm sure you do too! :)

I just discovered your blog and I am so excited! I love all of your ideas. I can't wait to see what else you have to share. I am going to create my own bowling for facts game! My kids will love it.

Mara said...

Hi! I've never posted any comments on your site, but I've followed it for a couple months and I love it! You're so creative and your classroom looks like so much fun!
I'm a reading teacher so this activity wouldn't work for me, but I had a thought. Maybe I could use it with site words and have flashcards with the sight words that they pick up and try to cover the board. Do you have a blank copy of the board without the numbers? My e-mail is mara.b.arnold@gmail.com
Thanks!!

Sarah said...

I would love a copy of this, too!

I wonder if it would be easier to make it available through Google docs or Scribd. Although I'm not quite sure how either of those sites work... :)

Thanks for sharing!!!

Cristina said...

I would also love a copy! I have played bowling before where your have students put their markers up on end in triangle shape. They roll a small bouncy ball to knock them down and create a number sentence to go with it. Your game seems a lot more controlled!

I am loving your site!

Diane said...

I've just recently discovered the world of teachers blogging and have looked at your blogs. I also just found out 5 days ago that I am moving schools and moving to first grade (not something I want). I spent the last two years in third grade and the previous 7 years were either 4th or 5th. I'm looking for things to help me in first grade. I would love a copy of this bowling activity if you are still sending it out.
