Now all the four players use different mathematical operations to get the highest number using the same numbers.They write down all the alternative methods to get the highest number in their notebook. Then they compare and write the scores accordingly as mentioned on the game board.(0 to 20 get 10 points,21 to 50 get 20 and so on)

eg. On rolling the dice they get numbers 4,6,2,5. The learners will use arithmetic operation of addition and multiplication to get the highest number which should not be more than 100. ( 4 x 6 = 24 and 5 x 2 = 10. and 24+10 = 30) He got 30 as an answer. According to the score board, he scores 50 points.

Tool One – Use adjectives and adverbs to add detail and help the reader make vivid mind pictures of what’s happening

Tool Two – Use dialogue to bring the characters to life. Include

actions, thoughts, and feelings.

Tool Three – Correctly punctuate dialogue with commas and

quotation marks.

Tool Four – Use linking/transition words to show the reader the piece is moving.

Tool Five – Use Voice – emotions, personality, confidence.

Tool Six – Tell the whole story – BME.
