Building Block Doubles and writing idea

My kiddos LOVE building blocks so I like to tap into that interest and find ways to keep them engaged and learning while 'playing'. :)

The newest addition to my building block math resources has students practicing doubles up to 6+6.  I'm thinking about creating one with doubles up to 12+12, do you think that would be a hit?

Teachers have a choice of using a spinner or dice with this station.  The students in the group are usually my deciding factor!

Students roll or spin then double the number to play this game.  I have included "I can" instruction cards for each option and made it available in both color and black and white.  For added fun I use Lego block as game markers.

You can find it HERE in my TPT store.

If your student love building blocks too I also have the following resources available, just click on the pictures to learn more :)

and this freebie :)

How bout turning those Lego creations into a writing opportunity? The next time you hear "I don't know what to write about" give them this paper and have them write about that Lego creation they made during recess :) Click on the picture below to download for FREE.

As always, I love to give a few copies of my new products away, so the first 3 people who comment on this post will get a copy of Building Blocks Doubles Math Station.


  1. Ooooh, I know some of my boys (and girls) will love this!!!

  2. The students will be fighting over who gets to play...I mean, learn!

  3. My students would LOVE this!

  4. I would love a copy! Thank you!

  5. I just saw I was beat by one minute. Maybe next time. :-). Also, I think going up to 12+12 would be a hit! I think the more options, the better. Once the kiddos master up to 6+6, I know they would love more. Thanks for all your hard work!

    1. I think you're right, I'm going to add it to my to-do list. I just sent you an email, one minute doesn't seem fair ;)
