Well, it’s not so much of a challenge today and more of a game to continue on with our weekly theme of bringing you a game a week that can be adapted to teach pupils working from Early through to Third Level and sometimes beyond.
This week we bring you Dotty to… This is another game we’ve adapted from NRICH so thanks to them for the original idea.

- (Not so) Dotty Fractions, Decimals and Percentages
I have played this with quite a large number of kids and they go mad for it! When I return to schools where we’ve introduced it, it is often reported to be the ‘go to’ game.
You can use it for all sorts of things from copying patterns to addition and subtraction facts within 10, those missing number problems that kids often find tricky and all the way up to making sense of fractions, decimals and percentages! We’ve even got an outdoor version we’ve called ‘Stones and Cones’.
We hope you enjoy this one, we’ve certainly had a lot of fun playing it!
