Jelly Bean Game Differentiation Strategies
There are three sections of the Jelly Bean game: counting, number sense, and math facts. Within each section of the game, there are three levels:
Level 1: Type in the number of jelly beans
Level 2: Basic addition and subtraction with beans
Level 3: Counting arrays of jelly beans (addition and subtraction with multiple digits)
Level 1: Choose the larger group of jelly beans
Level 2: Estimate the number of jelly beans
Level 3: More difficult combination of levels 1 and 2
Level 1: Addition and subtraction with numbers and beans
Level 2: Addition and subtraction to “Make 10”
Level 3: A mix of slightly harder problems
You can provide differentiated game play opportunities by assigning specific levels to specific students or groups of students.
You can support struggling learners by clicking the clock in the main menu to turn off the timer. This will allow students to focus on the math concepts rather than how much time they have left.
