Monday Math Freebie - Paper and Pencil Shut-the-Box

Classroom Freebies Manic Monday
Last week my class started looking at activities for practicing basic facts in addition and subtraction. I created this recording sheet so that they could play a version of the game "Shut-the-Box" with paper and pencil. (You can learn more about the game at Board Game Central.)

Here's what it looks like.

If you still want the tactile aspect to this game, try writing the digits 1-9 on poker chips. As students flip or remove the chips they can record the results on this page.

I hope you get a chance to use this in your home or classroom. Please let me know if you try this and how your kids like it.
