Get ready for fall fun with this set of 30 partner math games for first grade math centers and rotations! Because they feature graphics like pumpkins, leaves, apples, fire safety, and scarecrows, these games will fit nicely with your first grade autumn themes! {No Halloween graphics are included in this set except for pumpkins and candy corn.}

Here are the topics included in this set.

* Addition through 18

* Addition strategies (doubles, sums of ten)

* Adding on the 120 chart

* Ten frames

* Missing addends through sums of 10

* Subtraction

* Mixed addition and subtraction

* Sequence of numbers through 120 (before, after, between)

* Early place value (comparing two-digit numbers).

Each single-page game is designed to be played by partners and is easy-prep and “self-contained” – there are no cards to print, or to lose! :)!

How can you use these games during distance learning? Although this isn't a digital resource, here are some ideas for using these games for in person, hybrid, and remote teaching.

* Teachers, create a JPEG of any page and use your favorite app or program (Seesaw, Goggle Classroom, etc.) to digitize any game easily! Then use it on devices in your hybrid classroom, email it home for practice, or post it on your password-protected website. Use the included blacklines to send any games home in your printable packs!

* Homeschoolers and families, print games or digitize as described above for fun family or partner practice.

Directions for play are in a student-friendly numbered format. The tools required for play are also simple – just dice and erasable markers!

These games are kind to your ink concerns – less than 20% of each page is in color, plus a black and white version of each game is also included. If you choose to use the black and white version, you can have your students color them before using them in your math centers. They're also terrific to send as family math homework! A parent letter explaining this is also included.

Ideal for use in your math centers, these games are also great for homeschoolers, tutors, and math interventionists.

*Check the preview and video for a closer look at what you'll get!

There are no games in this set that specifically practice place value beyond comparing two digit numbers. Instead, please see Winter Place Value Games.

Determine the unknown whole number in an addition or subtraction equation relating three whole numbers. For example, determine the unknown number that makes the equation true in each of the equations 8 + ? = 11, 5 = ▯ - 3, 6 + 6 = ▯.
Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 - 4 = 13 - 3 - 1 = 10 - 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 - 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13).
Understand subtraction as an unknown-addend problem. For example, subtract 10 – 8 by finding the number that makes 10 when added to 8.
