Well Played, K-2 is the second in a series of three books by Linda Dacey, Karen Gartland, and Jayne Bamford Lynch that helps teachers make puzzles and games an integral part of math instruction.
Following the same accessible format as the first book in the series (for grades 3-5), 25 field-tested games and puzzles are each introduced with math areas of focus, materials needed, and step-by-step directions. Readers will see how they play out in the classroom and get tips on maximizing student learning, exit cards for student reflection, variations, and extensions. The rich appendix has reproducible directions, game boards, game cards, and puzzle materials, and each chapter includes assessment ideas and suggestions for online games and apps.
Get your K-2 students talking and learning more as they play games and build their thinking as mathematicians. Well Played, K-2 is available now, and you can preview the entire book online!
