Compound It All!
By Wendy Spray, Bois Blanc School
This game is GREAT! We love it! The more we play it the better the students get. I have one student who really doesn't like these types of games, but has really developed the knack for it. We are going to be very sad now that I have sent this back—they were all bummed when I told them we were only borrowing the game!
We played whole group—2nd, 7th, and 8th grade—they had a great time "stealing" and attempting to "ground hog." This is great cross curricular game using language arts and math concepts, additionally, a wonderful introduction to positive and negative integers. The students ask to play to play this game daily, and of course who am I to tell them no!
I can't wait to get the official Compound It All! game to play as often as we want—of course I will NEED all of the sets.
