Each partner gets a Toothy mat and dry erase marker. Students will take turns choosing a card. Each student who is playing the game will solve the problem on their Toothy mat or dry erase board. When all who are playing have answered the question, they compare their answers and then turn the card over to check to see if their answer is correct. Those who have a correct answer get to draw a tooth in Toothy’s mouth on their mat. If the student’s answer is incorrect, they do not draw a tooth and those who got the answer correct must explain how they got to the correct answer. Then the next student draws the next card and the process is repeated. The game is over once all the cards have been answered. The student with the most teeth in Toothy’s mouth is the winner of the game.

    Toothy is amazing!!! My son struggles to complete any work but loves how easily he can flip through a toothy bin to answer questions. He likes the reference cards in case he starts to get frustrated with the work. It’s easily accessible, remains organized, and keeps assignments quick and to the point for him. He absolutely loves the pictures on the cards too. I will be using Toothy with my own boys as well as in future classrooms! I love how it covers so much content quickly!
