Beehive Spin and Add
Spinner games are always a hit with my students, and they are so simple to set up – which makes them a hit with me too!
All I needed for supplies were a pencil and paperclip. The makeshift spinner was ready to go.
I printed out enough copies of the game for my students to play, and then set them out with pencils, paperclips, and crayons in our math bins for math workshop so that the game was ready to come off the shelf and be played right away.
My students first set up the spinner by placing the pencil through the paperclip in the center of the first bee. Then, they flicked the paperclip with their finger to see where it landed.
After they got the first number, it was time to move to the second bee! They repeated the spin on the second bee to see what their next addend would be.
Once they combined the two numbers together, they took their yellow crayon and hunted for a beehive with the matching total and colored it in.

They kept spinning and adding until all of the beehives were colored.
