Gosselin/Rodriguez, M.-Math- Get Close To Zero-4/15

Teacher: Rosso Gosselin (mrgosselin@hps.holyoke.ma.us)


Hello Second Graders,

This week we would like you to play the game “Get Close to Zero with 6 Rolls” We have played this game in school. We are practicing subtracting from 100. Below check out the video I made to help families play the game.

Get to zero with 6 rolls

  1. Die numbers 1-6 (if you do not have a die take a piece of paper and cut into 6 pieces and write the number 1-6. Place in a container and pick a number or numbers 1-6 playing cards)
  2. Fold a piece of paper in half the long way.
  3. Each player starts at 100
  4. Player A- rolls or picks a number and record it and write the number as a 1 or a 10 (4 or 40)
  5. Subtract the number rolled (100-40= ?)
  6. The answer for each turn is the starting number on the next turn.

Players take turns until one player gets close to zero. The player closest to zero wins.
