Baseball Addition Game
This baseball games included the addition facts 0-19 for you to decide which facts your kids need to work on. It is great to use in math stations or for a small group activity to help children learn the math facts. I included 2 pages of blank baseball cards for you to write the facts you want on if desired. I like to work on 4 to 5 facts at a time, so I put that equation in about 5 times. If you use this game for review, you would put in more facts. I like to have at least 30 cards in my games. Print the cards on cardstock and laminate them.
The children will take turns drawing a card and solving the equation. If they are right, they keep it. The teacher decides if they discard it if wrong, or if they are told the answer and then repeat the equation. I usually have time to play the game twice, so I help them the first time but not the second time. I think that if they know they will have to give the card up if wrong the second time playing, they will try harder to learn it the first time playing. If they draw a special card they do as it says. My kids love the special cards.
Special Cards (Only put in 2 of each.)
Homerun! The child gets 4 more cards from the deck.
Single - The child gets 1 more card from the deck.
Double - The child gets 2 more card from the deck.
Triple - The child gets 3 more card from the deck.
Strike 1 - The child gives up 1 card from their cards.
Strike 2 - The child gives up 2 cards from their cards.
Strike 3! You’re Out! - The child gives up 3 cards from their cards.
The child with the most cards when the cards are gone wins.
