Hey guys!  It is Thrifty Thursday again!  It is time to get your thrifty on!!

Today’s activity takes a little more prep work, but is still very easy.  How about some review using a game of checkers?

I realized *after* I set the board up that I only needed problems on the black spaces. Slapmyhead.
To created the game I simply wrote addition problems with sums to 20 (second grade CCS). I wrote the problems on address sized labels and then cut them to fit the checker board square.  I was able to get about 8 problems per label! I just turned the label around and wrote on it vertically instead of horizontally, if that makes sense!
Students play the game following these instructions
and then record the problems on the recording sheet.
You can use this same idea to practice multiplication or division facts or even spelling words!
And for your Thrifty Thursday deal? For today ONLY  you can get the October Daily Math Pages for half off!  
This is a second grade spiraling math review that reviews 5 domains.  The packet includes a daily review sheet for 4 days of the week and a matching assessment for the fifth day.  The assessment includes a matching rubric.  Everything is correlated to the Common Core Standards for second grade and they will go along nicely with my October Math Centers (when I finish them-I am more than half done!).  This pack is PERFECT for independent work during guided math.
