Skill addressed: Basic addition facts from 2-12

Supplies needed:

  1. One clean egg carton per student: each egg hole must be labeled with a number 2-12, with a * in the first box
  2. 12 jellybeans per student
  3. One pair of standard dice per pair

Directions:

  1. Divide the class into pairs.
  2. Each pair will roll a die to see who goes first.
    • The player with the lowest number begins.
  3. For each turn, the player rolls the dice and adds the two numbers together.
  4. The student has to find the section of his or her egg carton with that number and puts a jellybean in it. The * may be used for any number.
    • For example, if a player rolls a 3 + 5, but already has a jellybean in the 8 space, she may put one in the * space.
  5. The next player rolls the dice, and does the same.
  6. Play continues until someone has a jellybean in every section of his or her egg carton.
  7. The first student to get a jellybean in each section wins the round.
