Homeworkopoly Questions - Can you help?

(1) What do you use to attach the moveable student game "pieces" to the board? I assume that you all hang the board up.
(2) Does anyone do something different with the brain benders?
Thank you!

I used push pins with student names on them for game pieces. Then they just moved them around the board without having to poke holes in the game board.

I don't think I can help you on the first question because I'm thinking you will be unable to do what I do with the game pieces since mine is on a bulletin board...I just use push pins.

On the second question, if one of my students lands on brain bender, he/she may have 20 minutes on the computer to play any educational games that are marked "favorites" on the computers in my classroom.

Hope this helps

I placed a small magnet in each square. Then I put each student's name on a foam star with a magnet on the back of it.

I'm using this for grade 8 this year (I had them last year - homework is an issue). For Brain Bender, I'm asking them a math fact/review/trivia question. If they get it right, they get a "Thumbs Up", which is a little award that's part of our classroom management system (they can use it to buy prizes, supplies, etc).

Anyways, I used the pictures to make a SmartBoard version of it, so I use that. I'm no help with pieces!

Game Pieces

I use the children's pictures as game pieces and place a magnet on the back of them. I also placed a magnetic strip around the perimeter of the board where their pieces land.

I also put a magnet strip along the perimeter and used small round magnets that were just big enough to write the student's number.

For the Brain Benders I asked the students a Brain Quest question. If they got it right, they could pick a sticker out of my sticker box.

For their game pieces, I printed out the ones that came with Homeworkopoly, and then velcroed them onto clothespins. Then I write their names on the clothespins. The print out pieces are too cute and the students love being the hamburger or the igloo.

For brain binder, I let my students work on Mastery Club during Silent Reading. Or they can play BrainQuest (It comes in different grade levels and they're fun questions....I got it at Costco for like $7) during Silent Reading.

Clothes pins are very easy. That way there are no holes in the board.

Brainbinders- I use word searches, mazes, hidden codes, and fun worksheets.

I made my board or a tri-fold project poster that I bought at Wal-Mart. I used the magnet men magnet clips (about 6-8) to hold the board up on the back of a metal storeage cabinet. They have magnet men at Really Good Stuff but I bought mine at a teacher's store. I used clothespins as the game pieces. For brain binders I have the children solve a current problem that we have been working on during the week--usually it's a math problem. I used Homeworkopoly for the first time last year and it was a great motivator in my class. I highly recommend it.

Hi! I use the round magnets with the students numbers painted on them. I have usually have it on my magnetic desk or chalkboard. Works great.

For the Brain Benders, I used a Puzzlemania book I received free from Highlights. I tore it apart, glued puzzles onto construction paper, and laminated. Students can use the puzzles for 20 minutes if they land on the spot. They use dry erase markers and have to clean them when put away. They love this!

I had my board laminated six years ago at Kinko's and still use it. I use clothes pins (spirng kind) that the kids decorate with their name, hobbies. ect. For brain binders, I print off the ones on the website.

the sticky tac to keep the game pieces on the board. For the game pieces, I just cut up an index card and let the students write their name and decorate it.

For Brain Binders, I let the students view a Brain Pop video - they love watching those!

smaller game board
Old 07-31-2007, 12:26 AM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #17

I am so excited to try this this year!

I have such little space, I had to shrink the board down to posterboard size. I'm hoping it will work if I start off with the pieces distributed across the board.

If anyone else is interested in making it smaller, its a little tricky :
In the print window under page scaling you have to click on multiple pages per sheet.
Pages per sheet is 2.
Page order is horizontal.
And check auto rotate pages.

Instead of brainbenders I changed it to trading cards. I'm going to print off some of the animal info pages on enchantedlearning.com as trading cards that the students can collect.
