Today’s post is a bit frivolous, but sometimes that can be good, too! I wanted to share with you a game that my students, K-5, have given enthusiastic thumbs up to during the last couple of weeks. “Look Look” is a game from Mindware that is for 2-6 players. If your students like “I Spy” or similar activities, then they will enjoy this. It is a bit more challenging, and sometimes requires basic addition and subtraction skills. Personally, as someone who has no visual/spatial skills, I find this game difficult sometimes. But I’ve noticed that my perception skills have improved as I have played it more.
“Look Look” is a good game for those last couple of weeks before summer vacation as a reward, for indoor recess, or to use in a center to work on basic math facts (by taking out the other cards, you can target those skills.) You could even have higher level students make some multiplication cards, or invent some other fun ways to use the game.
