November Math Games & Activities for Kindergarten, 1st & 2nd Grade

How pumped are you for November? Your students are finally in the groove of school and routines are now {pretty close to!} automatic!

I am pumped so many K-2 teachers have jumped at the chance to have ready-to-go math games for your classroom centers! Not only are these saving time and energy by not running around looking for games to fill up their math centers, they’re also making math a little bit more fun! Students truly love these themed activities and games!

I designed Centers in a Snap for you to open the box, make a few cuts, and get your kiddos going on standards-based games. Of course all of the manipulatives are included in the box so you don’t need to run around a find anything!

Three boxes are available to choose from each month: Kindergarten Math Games, 1st Grade Math Games, and 2nd Grade Math Games. Each game is designed to be skill-appropriate for the current month using fun Thanksgiving and Fall themes.

Read on to take a peek at a few of the games included in October’s Centers in a Snap games!

Simple Game Directions

Every game includes directions that also have a QR code. When a student scans the QR code, I teach them how to play the game so you don’t have to teach the games 🙂

The directions walk students through the materials they will need to play the game, as well as how to play. Imagine teaching one less thing – amazing, right!?

All of the pictures below are from the first grade box. However, I’ve included notes below each game to show how the different versions vary slightly.

Falling Leaves

Falling Leaves gives your students a chance to practice subtraction. They roll two dice, subtract the numbers and cover the difference with a plastic leaf!

Kindergarten: students use a ten frame to subtraction
2nd Grade: students use a 10-sided die and a 20-sided die

Gathering Acorns

Students will LOVE using the fun acorns to cover up the problems on this gameboard. To play, students roll a die and pick a problem in that row. If they are correct, they can cover the spot with an eraser.

The goal is to cover one entire row of sums first!

Kindergarten: numbers recognition
2nd Grade: subtraction problems

Nutty for Numbers

I’ve included a place value game again this month because we all know just how important it is to recognize and make numbers with place value cubes.

For this activity, students match the number cards to the place value cards. Then, they record the answers on the worksheet.

Kindergarten: numbers through 10
2nd Grade: numbers through 200

Odd Bird

I’m always shocked at how challenging it is for students to learn odd and even numbers. Odd Bird gives your students a chance to play with these numbers!

Students will roll a die and move the corresponding number of spaces on the gameboard. The first play to make it to the end is the winner!

Kindergarten: students use 1-6 die
2nd Grade: students use two 20-sided dice

Raking Up Doubles

We know how important it is for students to learn doubles facts. Knowing these sums will help students add and subtract.

For this game, students cover all of the numbers on their side of the game board. They roll the die and double the number and then remove the counter from that place on their side. First player to remove all counters on their board wins!

Scaring Crows

Students will get a chance to practice addition playing Scaring Crows.

On their turn, the student rolls the dice and adds. They can cover the sum on the gameboard. First player to use all ten of his/her counters wins!
