Hi, my name is Marija, and today I'm going to show you some classroom math games for grades three through six. So this is a game that I actually even play with my eighth graders. And you can do it with any grade. We use flash cards and depending on your grade level the difficulty of the cards will change. So in eighth grade for example we do multiplication, if you're doing third you might still be doing addition. So you start with three different students playing and this guy in the middle here is going to be your dealer and the two kids that are sitting on the side will be shown the same flash card. And basically whoever says the answer first gets that card. So the dealer just keeps on showing cards and whichever kid gets it first gets the card and then they just count up the cards that they have and whoever has the most at the end wins. And then if let's say student A won now A becomes the dealer and the dealer goes against B and they just keep on rotating. So this is a very easy game that you can do in groups of three and you can change the level just depending on the types of cards that you use. Another game that I like to do with flash cards is to set up a flash card line. So you have the students sitting across from each other, and I usually do it with six rows by six rows and what you do is you have one row, so this row would be my testers and this row would be the students that are being tested. So this row each has a different category of flash cards so I like to have like multiplication, vocabulary, like terms, and so on and so forth and these kids are all testing the ones across from them. And what I do is just give them two minutes and every two minutes they'll have to get up and rotate to the left that way within about a 20 to 30 minute time span, all of these children have been tested or have tested themselves and they've been able to see all the different categories that are available with the flash cards. So those are some games that you can do from grades three to six.
