First, let me say that I would recommend you checking out her blog. It is so cute and has so many wonderful ideas for your classroom! She has ideas for all areas of the curriculum. I just saw a great new brain break site that she wrote about today on it! Click on the image to check it out!
Now, back to my review:) I offered the opportunity to my entire class of 1st and 2nd graders and their families, and the majority signed up. Casey even includes a letter (which includes expectations for families so that the games will be ready to use again and again by more students) that is ready to send home so you don't have the take the time to write one. What a time saver! So, for the past few weeks I have been sending them home and I have gotten great feedback! I have also been using them in my classroom during math centers as well and they work well for that too. So this product works well for both home and school for 1st and 2nd graders!
Here are some of them ready to be laminated.
She provides an answer sheet for any game/activity that needs one which is helpful for in the classroom for students that disagree about the correct answer, or if a parent is not available to help while the student is using it while at home.
Here are some photos of my 1st and 2nd graders using the activities and games in the classroom:
Geometry: Students were counting vertices, edges, and faces.
She even provides as assessment page for each game/activity that students could do at home!
I would highly recommend this product for use both in the classroom, or to really help to develop a better school/home connection! These would also be perfect if you have a family math night in your classroom.
