Here is a quick no-prep game for any elementary classroom: Guess My Number!

It helps teach place value, fractions, greater than/less than, logic and working memory skills.

This product includes a one-page instruction sheet including the skills taught, different player configurations, rules, a sample round, and extension ideas.

This game requires NO PREP and NO MATERIALS at all.

This game can be used in any elementary classroom (grades K-8). It is great for the following uses:

·       - Morning/home-room warm-up

·       - TOC back-up activity

·       - To fill the 5 minutes before lunch or the end of the day

·       - As a reward for small-group or one-to-one tutoring

Guess My Number Rules: Start with a range based on your students (ex: 1-20 for K, 1-100 for Gr 1-4, 1-200 for Gr 5-7). The teacher (or student if playing in pairs) thinks of a number in that range. The other student (or whole class) has exactly 5 questions of greater than or less than to narrow it down. After 5 questions, they must guess the number.

Sample Round:

T: I’m thinking of a number between 1-100.

S1: Is it greater than 50?           T: Yes.

S2: Is it greater than 75?           T: No.

S3: Is it less than 60?                 T: No.

S4: Is it less than 70?                 T: Yes.

S5: Is it greater than 65?           T: No

This class has narrowed it down to between 60-65. Now they guess. (The number was 62.)
