    Make some review games...

    I have started making inexpensive games that review curriculum as well. Here are some my fourth grade students really enjoy.

    FISHING: I bought a small magnetic fishing game for $1 at the dollar store. It is a pole with a magnet on the end. I made a bunch of paper fish and stuck a paper clip in the end of their mouths. I wrote math facts like "5x7" on them. Students lay them face down and fish for facts. I let them keep score when they play. If they get the fact right they get a point.

    MEMORY: Take any information that you work on and make a memory match game. I cut up cardstock paper and made a fraction match game and a time game. For the fractions, I put a drawing on one card and the numbers on the other. For the time, I put digital on one card and a clock face on the other.

    BRAINQUEST CARDS: I made a jeopardy board to go with these cards. I laminated the board and students put bingo chips on it to show questions that have been asked already. Put all the categories at the top, and money amounts down the grid. Students can choose a game show host and work with adding up the $$$ to see who wins.
