Free Math Game-Common Core

In all of my Mathematics Packets, I am including spinner games for centers. We were having a hard time figuring out how to fasten the "spinner" part and then mom solved it. To celebrate this, here is a FREE greater/less spinner game with a spinner!

These are the materials she used:
a hammer
a long screw
Brass Fasteners 1/2 inch size
Brass Basting Pins Size 2, with a hole at the end
Flat washers #8 (Bulldog Hardware)

On a hard surface, put the screw in the middle of the spinner (pointed tip down) and hit it with the hammer to make a small hole. Put the safety pin, then the washer (smooth side beside the pin) on the brad and put it though the hole. Fasten in the back and adjust so the safety pin will spin!

This is how we are organizing our center baskets - we are putting the game pieces in small baskets.

Mom made dice squares to fit her soft dice. If this is something you like, I will include it in the packets.

Here are some things we are doing this week:
 Write the Room

Predictable Chart- I prewrite the sentence frames and add student names on the side. 

So proud of my cute new rug!
And mom's new rug, too!
