On A Roll

In math it is all about money right now.

I've played this simple game with my students for years although it never had a name or any recording sheets.  So as we were playing today for the umpteenth time, cause the kids love it, I decided it needed some tweeking and a name.

So this is what I came up with.

All you need are dice, real or fake coins, and the recording sheets.

"On A Roll" can be played to 50 cents using pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters. Or to $1.00 using the same coins with or without half-dollars depending on the ability of your students and curriculum.

This game includes teacher directions, student directions, and recording sheets.

It is now available at my Teacher's Notebook store for $1.00.

I'll give it away fuh-ree to comment number...

(And only one comment is allowed.)

But if you warm my heart on this wretched below zero day (with inside recess all day and loud snow-crazed kids) you might get lucky and get one too!

BTW, the weather isn't supposed to improve until after Friday.  Can you say inside recess all week, no recess aides, no breaks, someone's gonna die?


  1. Ohhhh am I lucky number 7? I hope so!!!

  2. :) I don't teach money but I will add a comment so someone can win it!! :)

  3. This looks really fun and a great way to reinforce those money skills that need so much practice! Can #3 be lucky too ? :)

    I feel your pain of inside recess...we've been in the past 2 days. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we can go out tomorrow!


  4. I had inside recess too and they gave me 2 classes to watch!

    I'll sacrifice myself so someone else can get the lovely math game :)

  12. I feel your pain...we had SNOW Friday but school was on. I hear you with indoor recess, no aide, you name it as that was me, too.

    I let mine draw on the condensation on the windows as a "special treat" (normally a no-no!). It was hilarious to watch their happy little faces AND recess flew by! Hope you are recovered by now.
