She also suggests placing task cards in old VHS tape boxes and labeling the outsides to make them easily accessible. What a great way to reuse them! Check out her amazing collection of math games below!

The boxes below the bulletin board contain the prize for passing go and the mystery prizes. The folder contains the brain buster activities (for landing on the brains) and a homework checkoff list (with each students name). I would pick one student each day to be in charge of collecting everyone's work and marking off their names on the list. My fourth graders LOVED it and it definitely motivated them to do their homework. The best part is you can download the game for free here! To assemble, I printed all the pages and glued them onto a sheet of large white paper (since we didn't have any white I used the back side of a yellow roll of bulletin board paper that was white). The only downside I found was that our school laminator wasn't big enough to fit it so I had to bring it to Kinkos and it cost almost $50 to laminate! Yikes! It was hard as a rock laminated though so it will last forever!
