Have you ever played 10,000 before? If you haven't this game is inspired by 10,000. It was funny because my intention was to teach my class this game but then I realized that the full version was a tad too difficult for adding reasons and number of rules. The game quickly became modified into 1000 and my muffins LOVED them some 1000 playing!

Here is a picture of the plate the kids use to roll their dice on to cut down on the noise. My wonderful mentors Carla and Joan gave me this idea. Just hot glue gun some felt into a paper play and bye-bye noisy dice sounds!!!
As you can see they are a little worse for wear due to many year of use!!

Here is the video - it is so cute and catchy - we sang it a lot!
