These math games are tried and true. 53 pages of kid friendly games. There are 6 concentration games that can be made into centers or used for desk work. They address the Common Core Math standards of Algebraic Thinking, Place Value, Odd and Even, Measurement, and Fact Families. There are also 6 I have, who has games that cover the same Common Core areas for second grade.
My students love the concentration games and can play them over and over totally independently. They play when they are finished with the daily math assignment and can play by themselves or with one or two others.
I print out all the games on colored card stock and place them in their own bags. This is an easy to manage center with no time wasted learning a new game.
The I have, Who has games are great fillers and take only 5 minutes to go through the entire class. I buddy up my students who aren't ready to quickly respond with a partner.
