- Hi everyone! I’m back again with a new wonderful product to review for you! With spring fever hitting hard and heavy, this product from Teresa Williams at 2nd Grade Pig Pen is just the ticket to keep antsy children engaged in learning!

Today’s product is called “Fun in the Sun Tic-Tac-Toe Games.” With its bright yellow cover and beachy theme, it is sure to catch the attention of beach-dreaming little ones. The beach/summer theme is carried out throughout the whole product, with flop flops, strawberries, beach balls, Popsicles, surfboards, sand buckets, and other fun summery objects.
The packet includes three language arts review games and three math review games. I have not used the language arts games yet, but they include the following:
I used the three math games during a Friday game day. My kids really enjoyed playing the three different tic-tac-toe games included in the packet. It was a great review of skills we had already practiced. One of the games is Number Order – Before – always a more challenging skill.
No one won this game!
Another game is Number Order – After.
And the third game is telling time, which can be played two ways for differentiation — the children can either read the time correctly, or they can read the time, and tell the time an hour later. Time is to the hour and half-hour.
My students really enjoyed these games, and each time they played, it came out a bit differently. What I liked about these games was the fact that they are perfect for end of the year review, that they didn’t use a ton of ink, and that the directions are right on each page. Now that my children know how to play the math games, I have put them into envelopes for early finishers and center time. Thanks, Teresa, for creating this wonderful product that will be fantastic for end of the year review and beginning of the year review for the next grade level.
