Qwirkle. It’s such a great word to say and such a FUN game to play!! We’ve been using Qwirkle from MindWare all year in our math stations. By now you might be asking, what is Qwirkle??! It’s a game that helps my students with their colors and shapes! It’s like playing Dominos + Scrabble combined!
Qwirkle requires players to match the tiles by shape or color. You can match a tile if it is the same color OR if it is the same shape. You can score points, but my students love just playing and matching! I love watching them figure out where a tile should go and have discussions on why a tile fits or doesn’t fit in a certain spot. (Great for questioning and discussion!!)
Qwirkle comes neatly packed in its box. Once you open it up, you find all the colored tiles and a bag to store them in! We keep the bag in one of our math station drawers. My students love grabbing this game to play during math stations, and I love that they are learning strategy while practicing colors and shapes!
I highly recommend adding Qwirkle to your math station rotations! Your students will thank you! It would also be a great game to play at home with your family!! (It comes in a travel size too!!!)

What's your favorite cereal?? It's hard for me to choose between Lucky Charms and Froot Loops! I totally forgot I made these fun "lucky marshmallow" number cards last year! You can grab them for FREE at the link below.I'll be printing these out to use at home with my kiddo. "Yucky Charms" is one of her favorite cereals 😂 We'll work on one-to-one correspondence to match the marshmallows to the pictures. We'll also work on not eating all the marshmallows until after we finish the activity!➡️ bit.ly/luckynumbercards ... See MoreSee Less

⭐ NEW MONTH ⭐ NEW READING LOG 📚I absolutely loved the start of a new month when teaching because it always meant a fresh reading log in take-home folders. My students always looked forward to their new logs so they could see the new picture they would be coloring for each book they read.I used their monthly reading logs for the Pizza Hut @bookitprogram and also with my classroom reward system. I also let students borrow books who may not have had too many at home. These were always a huge hit with students and families!🔗 bit.ly/readinglogsallyear ... See MoreSee Less
