What educators are saying

This is a great organized resource for math centers. Once students are taught the routine these centers run themselves. Very engaging and encourages critical thinking!
I loved these so much that I purchased another set for when I changed grades. I use this level for differentiation now.

    1st Grade Math Games Descriptions:

    Face Off:  In this hands on game, students “face off” by counting down and turning their game cards over at the same time. The player that finds the correct answer first wins the match.

    Flip and Match: In this cooperative game, students take turns flipping their cards over to make a correct match. Next, they use Math Talk cards to explain their answers.

    Four in a Row: In this hands on math activity, students take turns to answer a variety of questions and mark them on their game mat. The first player to mark 4 answers in a row, column, or diagonally is the winner.
