Roll Tens

There was a lot of counting going on in our classroom today!  Counting by tens and then adding on the single ones. We have become master counters!!  The game we played today was called Roll Tens.  It is played with a partner and each takes turns rolling the dice, finding the total, and adding that amount of cubes to the mat.  The cubes are put into strips of ten, and the goal is to collect 100 in all, filling the mat.  On each turn, the player had to count up the total amount of cubes collected, and record this.  For an extra challenge students could also figure out how many more cubes they would need to get to 100.  This was optional but many rose to the challenge!
