Your primary class is buzzing with enthusiasm as students work in pairs on opposite sides of a barrier to create a “match.” In Gumball Wizard, one partner arranges coins in specific places on a gumball machine game board. Then she describes her arrangement: “I have a 5 cent coin in the top left.” Her partner must find the 5 cent equivalent game piece and place it in the top left of his game board. Through verbalising the content, partners master early primary vocabulary and skills. There are 30 games in all covering key content such as: sight words, numbers, letters, blends, community helpers, time, money, weather, solar system, and many more. 240 pages.
- 30 hands-on cooperative learning games.
