Speed Don’t Eat Pete–One Player

Child Playing Don't Eat Pete

To transform original Don’t Eat Pete into Speed Don’t Eat Pete, all you need is a stopwatch or timer.

Do not choose “Pete.”  The object of this game is to clear the board (with correct answers) as quickly as possible.

  • Start the timer as your child picks up the first marker.
  • Stop the timer when the last correct answer is given.
  • Record the time so that your child can see her progress.

To play this game, children should be very familiar with the facts on their board.  This drill is not to teach new skills,  but to review and increase speedy recall of facts previously learned.

I’d love to hear how your family or class liked this version of the game.  Please share ideas for different ways to play as well!  Thanks.
