Product Description
Are you looking for math games that will add an extra challenge and encourage your first graders to think and strategize? Mental Math Strategy Games for Addition and Subtraction is a set of six first grade math games for practice with addition and subtraction through 20. . Also included is early place value work, with adding ten and twenty to sums of two dice rolls .

There are lots of opportunities for mental math and strategizing, as your students decide whether to add or subtract the numbers they roll, trying to reach the target numbers on their boards to win by marking “four in a row”!

Each gameboard has a set of choices on it, For example, on the board with the choices "+10 or -2", if a student rolled a three and a five, he'd need to decide whether to add 10 to 8 and cover 18, or subtract 2 from 8 and cover 6. Players will mentally compute both options to decide which will bring them closer to the goal of completing a line of four numbers in a row on his board. Lots of math, and strategic play, too!

Here are the mental math operations your students will complete in each of the games :
Add 1 or subtract 1 (two games)

Each of these games is just one page - print and you're ready to go! All your students will need is dice, a game board, and a way to cover spaces on the board. Beans make good space covers, or if you laminate your boards, your students can just use a wipe-off marker.

For your convenience, all of the games come in both color and blackline.
