    Question - Can one group do it each day?
    Answer - I don't see why not but I think it might get confusing for you to keep track as to who is suppose to roll.

    Question - How long would it take 5 or 6 students to do it daily?
    Answer - Not long, I would say 2 - 3 minutes. 5 minutes tops. My entire class of 20 could do it in about 10 minutes.

    Question - First thing in the morning
    Answer - I don't think it matters when you do it. I did mine at the end of the day simply because that's when I had the time.

    Question - How do you keep track of who gets to roll?
    Answer - My kids sit in groups and when the group person collected papers and handed them in to me, he or she told me who didn't have his/her assignment. I simply wrote the assignment and students' names on a post it note and hung it on a piece of computer paper by my desk. When it was time for Homeworkopoly, I just looked at the post it notes and those students whose names were there couldn't roll.

    Question - Assignments for the whole week or just the day?
    Answer - My kids played only on Tues and Thurs. For Tues., I watched the assignments for the previous Friday through Tues. For Thurs, I watched the assignments for Wednesday and Thursday.

    Question - Did I have problems with students cheating?
    Answer - No, I didn't. I stood by them as they were rolling and moving their piece. Also, the rest of their group was there to watch them.

    I hope you can make sense of my answers (I tend to ramble)! If you can't or have other questions, let me know.
