Today I am starting a series of posts about a set of five-in-a-row game, I created for my classroom. I went a little crazy with the seven different versions, and I have since shared this game with my colleagues at different grade levels. Gomoku with Addition is the easiest level.
Students roll two dice, add the numbers together and put a marker on a square with the answer. The goal is to get five markers in a row horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. I introduced the multiplication version to my fourth graders. I had them teach this version to our first grade buddy class.
If you can't wait to get the whole set of game boards, Gomoku Games is a freebie in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. Gomoku is also available in my Teacher's Notebook store.
