Hungry, Hungry, Hippo Centers

Do you ever use board games in your centers? I love to use games so much that each Friday I write a Board Game Friday blog post on Raki’s Rad Resources with suggestions about how to use a particular game in your classroom. Normally, I use a new game in small group first. Then, once my students are comfortable with the rules of the game, and the various variations, I put it in a center to continue reinforcing the skill while students think they are playing.
My personal children love to play Hungry, Hungry, Hippo, so I chose to write two blog posts on how to make Hungry, Hungry, Hippo into an educational game that is perfect for centers.  Stop by and check them out to see how to use Hungry, Hungry, Hippo to practice skills like creating and exploring numbers, categorization, and making sentences. Click on the pictures to read more.
