This set of 51 partner games includes games for addition, subtraction, and missing addends, addressing Common Core Standards for Operations and Algebraic Thinking.

Each single-page game is designed to be played by partners and is easy-prep and “self-contained” – there are no cards to print! Just supply your students with dice, chips or pennies, and erasable markers.

Are you a 1:1 teacher? These games are ideal for use in your digital classroom! Just open a game on your Chromebook or iPad, give your students dice, and they're ready to go!

These games are also kind to your color ink concerns – less than 20% of each page is in color! For your convenience, the relevant Common Core standard is printed right on each game.

This set includes...
24 addition games
Addition within ten
Addition within 20
Mixed addition and subtraction

Game formats in this set include roll and cover, bump, path, dots and boxes, 120 chart, and memory.

Because the graphics on these boards are not seasonal, the games can be used whenever you teach the topic during your school year.

The games in this set will be a great addition to your math centers. They can easily be included in an intervention program or be used for tutoring. Plus, they make a great homework alternative to encourage family involvement! A letter to families explaining how to use the games at home is included in this set.

The missing addends games in this set are the same games as those in Missing Addends Games Sums Through Ten

*NOTE* These games are also included in 68 Addition, Subtraction, and Place Value Partner Games, a money-saving bundle that also contains three bonus games exclusive to this package!
