Arrays with Turkeys

My students needed a little extra practice with arrays and repeated addition, so today they worked with turkeys.

We also reviewed prefixes and suffixes with Roll and Read.  They worked in groups of 7 and they played well together in a larger group.  It's ideal to work in smaller groups to keep the game moving, but if they work well in larger groups then give it a try.  I only had 2 large dice so we used larger groups.

After playing the game (Roll and Read)  today, a helper passed out 7 cards to each student.  They wrote the words on the feathers and then used one word in a sentence.  This was another great activity to use when students spend the week testing!
