Math Games Galore FREEBIES!

A long time ago when I was in school, I hated math! It was SO tricky for me to “get” like all of my other classmates.

That is until my 2nd-grade teacher started using math games. I was hooked!

So when I became a teacher I knew I wanted to add math games to our math block every single day! Let me tell you – playing games has changed our math routine! EVERY student is loves game time!

Over the years I’ve created lots of games to use during our math game time. The goal is to make them low prep but big on skill practice!

First and foremost, I wanted to make the games completely self-sufficient for the students so that I can focus on those who still need help with the day’s lesson.  I purchased four Sterilite stackable drawers at CVS for around $12 each.  This way, I can put all supplies for the game inside and the students can simply slide the drawer out for whichever game they choose to play with their partner.

I labeled each drawer with the title of the game, as well as a graphic for the type of game it is (dice, cards, etc.).  My plan is to switch up the games pretty frequently, so I affixed velcro to the drawer and the back of the cards for a quick change-up solution.

I LOVE this new system and am so excited to see how it works throughout the year! After dedicating one math period to learning the procedures (and rules for each game), I’ve built up some excitement (and incentive) to finish up their lessons.

  1. We use EDM too, and I agree… The pacing for the range of student needs in the classroom is crazy! I love your math games set-up. Do you typically have the kiddos complete work with a partner so they'll always have a partner to do a game with? Or do you have some independent activities?

    1. Thanks so much, Angie! For the games, I always have partner games. However, one option they're also allowed to do is their "Thousands Club." It basically is the same as a the scroll EDM wants you to do, but I've simply stapled ten 100 charts together. They can continue to write and write and write numbers as long as their hearts desire, but they must show me after each page so I can check they're getting the pattern correct.

  2. There doesn't appear to be a link to the Google doc for "Oh no, 7". It is also linked to the doc for Doubles Coverup…… Great and colourful blog, by the way!
