To score as one of my favorite math things, an activity has to be rock-solid in addressing curriculum skills. I particularly love games and activities that improve number sense. Winning activities also need to be continually"fresh"; that is, every time students play, it should take them in a new direction.
One of my favorite activities is the game Contig. I did a blog post about it last year, but my kids and I love the game so much, I decided I wanted them to be able to play it at home. I put together a class/home version this summer. You can get it here.

I'll let you know what other favorites make their way back into the classroom this year. What are some of your favorite things?
