Match Mine: Mathematics
(Grades 3–6)
There's no better way to get your students talking about and using the language of mathematics than using these communication-building Match Mine games. Partners sit on opposite sides of a barrier. They each receive the same game board and game pieces copied from the book. For example, the game board is a grid and the game pieces are solid 3D geometry shapes. One student organizes her pieces on the game board. Then, with words alone, she must describe her arrangement to her partner so her partner can make a match. Students learn and use mathematics vocabulary and concepts as they play: "Place the rectangular prism in the first column, last row." The communication standard for math calls for: "students to organize their mathematical thinking through communication; communicate mathematical thinking clearly to peers; and use the language of mathematics to express ideas precisely." Includes 30 reproducible games spanning 7 strands of mathematics. Your students will ask to play again and again. 136 pages.

Mix-N-Match: Mathematics
(Grades 3–6)
Multiply mathematics mastery with fun and engaging learning games. Students each get a Mix-N-Match card related to the topic. They move about the room quizzing each other and trading Mix-N-Match cards. You call, "Freeze!" They then rush to find a partner with the matching card. "What time am I?" "How much do my coins add up to?" Students enjoy mixing and matching so much, they hardly realize they are repeatedly quizzing each other and mastering the content. Book includes reproducible Mix-N-Match card sets for: basic operations, coins, division, equivalent fractions, fractions and percents, graphing ordered pairs, measurement conversion, multiplication, place value, reading time, Roman numerals, subtraction. 208 pages.
