Games – number patterns

My class is a low performing class in an already low-performing school, Naplan-wise, and for about a week now I have been doing number patterns with them. And yet, it would be fair to say that less than half of the class – maybe even 25% – are able to do them without having to say “I don’t this…” and me having to read out the question…

I am sick of worksheets and rubbish on the board, and have been trying to find some good games to use, and today I have found the following:

Place Value Headings


Number Patterns


Comparing and Ordering Numbers


The Greatest Game Ever


There are even more games to peruse, but I quite liked these ones for my low-level year 3 class. Please share any game ideas you have too!!
