We have been enjoying sharing of information and ideas from our three quadblogging buddy classes. Peterhouse Primary group Oriel Owls gave us some great tips for our bingo games.

To say THANKYOU to our quadblogging schools, we made this movie  to teach them how to play one of our favourite maths games, Fingers.

What to do: Make a group with 2-4 students. The teacher or leader calls a number. Your group must put out this many fingers. Each person in the group must have at least one finger down.

Quadblogging buddies, let us know how you go with our game. Leave a comment here.


Happy holidays, Grade 2L gang.

Follow this link to the Online Super Mario Flash Game and select the ‘Level Editor’ to create your own levels. Build your tunnels and mazes, select your player to control. Leave a comment here to let us know how you are going in your game creation.

A word of warning about the Mario Game Challenge: how will you convince your parents that you are learning and not just playing? Work on creating your own game, rather than just playing others. Make a great plan for your own Mario game before designing. Show your plan to your parents and discuss your ideas to impress them with your thinking!
