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!!!)

One of my absolute favorite resources is this parts of a plant notebook activity! 🌱I always brought in the food items for my students to build all of the plant parts and then taste each part. Then they would match up and label the parts of a plant and draw/write the food for each part.Have you tried doing this with your students??bit.ly/plantsnotebook... See MoreSee Less
