Quiz-Quiz-Trade Primary Mathematics book coverQuiz-Quiz-Trade: Primary Mathematics
Melissa Wincel (Grades K–2)
Sitting and keeping focused for lengths of time can be a challenge for little ones. Don't despair, Quiz-Quiz-Trade is here. You can create amazing learning while students are up and interacting with classmates. Each student receives a quiz card. For example, with the Shape Safari set, one student receives a triangle card. She pairs up with another student and asks the question: "What shape is this?" After her partner answers, she asks: "How many sides does it have?" After the partner answers, she asks: "How many vertices does it have?" After students quiz each other both ways, they trade cards and find a new partner to quiz. The repetition makes the content stick. The interaction makes the activity fun for all. Book includes 15 different sets on need-to-know primary math content including: adding, counting, measuring, shapes, fact families, fractions, double digits, graphing, and more. 224 pages.
