I love to get the kiddos up and moving using this Addition Hunt.

To make it, I simply printed out the colored cards {b&w are included} and taped them up around the room. They walked around the room searching for the problems to write in the corresponding box. It was a great way to work on skills and get some energy out!

They LOVED it and begged for a Subtraction Hunt this week!

Another fun game we play is Connect Four! Many kids are already familiar with the concept of the board game, so they were excited to play the math version! To liven it up, I simply printed the game onto bright paper. Who doesn’t love Astrobights? It just makes every activity better, right?

I’ve included an addition and subtraction version of these math games for you to use!

For subtraction, I wrote numbers the numbers (5-10) onto blank dice so the numbers would be big enough to subtract! You can buy blank dice {here} or pick up blank foam cubes at the dollar store!

I also introduced Rollin’ Rollin’ Rollin’ to the kids. To play, students take turns rolling two dice and adding the numbers.  They cross out the sum. The player to cross out the final number is the winner!

Again, I’ll probably copy this game board onto bright colored paper to make it a little more exciting and laminate it so the kids can use dry-erase markers instead!

Another of my favorite math games is Numbers Undercover and Doubles Undercover. We play this game A LOT during math time to work on those addition skills! I even sent it home for homework last week, too!

I always laminate the games with my Scotch Laminator so they’re durable to reuse over and over!

I love spending these couple of weeks playing games! As I’ve mentioned before, our math program is so goofy that some lessons are short and some take forever.  Some concepts are easily grasped by kids and some take a bit more time to master.

So, I love to have a stockpile of games for kids to play as they’re finishing up their work! If you’re looking for even more games, make sure to check out my Print & Play Math Games.

These low-prep games are a great way to slip in important skills in a fun way!

  1. Thanks for the freebie! I’ve been looking for fun dice games to add to my math centers. I’m not very techie though and can’t figure out how to download it. I signed up for the newsletter but I’m still can’t figure it out. Any help you can give to a tech deficient teacher would be so helpful πŸ™‚

  2. Thanks for the freebies! I am looking forward to introducing these to my kiddos. I haven’t received an email yet, that I am aware of, and I can’t figure out where/how to download. Any advice you can offer would be much appreciated.

  3. Thank you so much for the freebies. I am starting Guided Math this year and want to start with Fluency activities for centers. These are perfect!

  4. Thank you for sharing. We have been using the Connect Four sheets at the end of most maths periods. The boys love to play them.

  5. These games are great! Could you make some editions with higher number (for Addition Hunt and Connect 4) for Second Grade? I can always use number cubes instead of basic dice. I use MANY of your items from TPT for my Second grade class, but wish you had more for 2nd! Thanks, I appreciate you!
