Fun in the Box #13...

As part of our "mappin' Mondays" we were learning about reading grids. We looked at some maps and did some worksheets practicing our grid reading skills. To make it more fun I also made this grid reading game. They rolled dice I modified- 1 with a free space over the number 6 and 1 with the letters A-E and a free space. Then they located that square on the grid. Before they could mark that spot (with a penny or dime) they had to follow the silly directions on their square. The directions were things like "walk like a monkey, touch your toes to your nose" or "do the chicken dance".
Skill wise, it was a bit easy because they really got the grid reading. However, they loved it and kept begging to play again!
