I have created 10 games that align to the First Grade Common Core Math Standards. They would fit perfectly into stations, centers or Math Tubs! Each game has the standard listed as well as directions and possible variations plus a recording sheet. A few of the games have additional worksheets/cards for enrichment.
The games include:
*Ten/One More or Ten/One Less spin-students will spin for a number. They will spin the second spinner to find out whether they need to add 1 or 10 or subtract 1 or 10. They will record onto the recording sheet in a number sentence. 2 variations of spinners are included. 1 just says ten more/ten less/one more/one less 2-has the words plus (+10) underneath to help students realize what they are doing with the number sentence.
*2-digit sort-Students will sort 2 digit addition equations to whether they need to regroup when adding or not.
*True/False Tens and Ones-students will sort tens and ones with the number written underneath to whether they are correct or incorrect. They will record the CORRECT ones only on the recording sheet and will also record what number is 10 more and 10 less.
*Ten More/Ten Less-match numbers that are 10 more/less from each other
*Greater Than/Less Than/Equal To sort-students will place the statements on the mat that would have the symbol needed between the two numbers (numbers are to 120)
*3 Addend Sort-Students will sort the number sentences into the correct answer mat and record it on the worksheet. Extra cards are given, some subtraction are there too, if you wish to have students sort subtraction sentences with 2 minuends.
*2-Digit addition sort-Students sort 2-Digit equations by whether they are Greater Than, Equal To or Less Than 50.
*Graphing-Students will survey and graph the results. 2 are included-1 with a pre-filled question and choices and a second that is blank for students to create their own survey.
All games have a April/rain theme.

I'm so glad that you found ways to use the games! We have a new schedule next year so I'm starting my thinking (on my first day off!!) of how I might use these during math. There are a lot of transitions that will eat away from our math time next year-which was the time I used these games for! I might have to steal the choice boards idea for them!!! :) Thanks!

I have already used this unit a couple of different times. Thank you so much! It has been great.
Thank YOU! :) One thing I have learned in the past 10 years is that I want to create things that make things EASIER on me to get ready, etc.... So, now I can pass that along to others with things that I have made =) There's always room for improvement, but I, too, like how I can print these off, copy and laminate to get ready to go!
Thank you SO much for the detailed feedback! I like to list those things for you, since I am aware of what it meets when I make them. (plus it helps with planning and making sure you cover the standards!) :)

I liked the way you labeled the common core standards at the bottom of the lesson. It helps a lot. Very nice job!
