Addition by 2’s – PowerPoint Game

Math facts 2 PP image

This is an interactive PowerPoint game where students say the equation (2+1= ?), then guess the answer. Next, the student will tap the Smart-board or click the keyboard or mouse to go to the next slide. The next slide shows the correct answer. This is more like an interactive game, than a show! Enjoy!

Multiplication Review 0-5 on the Smartboard!!!!

Mult Powerpoint 0-5 cover picture.docx

This is a fun way for children to practice, review and learn multiplication facts 0-5!!!

Children practice multiplication facts in a small group, whole class or independently with this PowerPoint slide show.

Simply start the slideshow and the child will “say” the math fact: 2X2= ?. Next, the child will guess the answer. Then, he/she will “click” the “pawprint” on the next slide to reveal the answer.

*This can be used on a Smartboard or a desktop computer (by using a mouse).

Travel the World in Your Classroom! (End of the Year Fun with a Personal Passport)

My 4th and 5th graders loooved this activity so much! I listed the directions & skills (on the Smartboard) for each to work on at their own pace. I was there to help, when needed, though.

When a student finished his task, he came to passport control (me!) and I checked his work. If it was correct, I stamped his passport and gave him a new page (country/”task”).

If the student came to passport control without his passport, then he had to sit in jail (haha!) for crossing the border without proper documentation! He could only come out of jail after answering 5 Math facts! It took 3 days (45 min/day) for all tasks (in these pictures) to be completed. (10 students-Remedial-Special Ed.-Math, Language, Gr.4&5)

Here are some completed images. I made the passport cover with simple clipart images.


I just completed another successful year of this project with my 5th grade students! When the they visited each country and completed each task successfully….they earned a stamp and then a prize when they returned back to America!

Passport Cover  Click to the left to print out your very own passport cover. It’s a little different than the one shown here because I can’t find the file for the one shown in my pics here-err!
