Our little ones LOVE to play games. And, whenever we can strategically insert relevant core curriculum into those games, magic happens! Well, that's what we have here with the help of the game Candy Land.
Kids from preschool to 6th grade like this simple and visually appealing game. Use the original game board to play, but use these math practice and/or review themed playing cards instead of the original ones. Students must answer the question correctly using their mental math strategies (or scratch paper, if you prefer) to be able to advance to the color shown on the card. I've also included the special jump ahead cards, so no need to dig out the original pink cards.
Simply print, cut, and laminate up to 70 cards to start practicing and reviewing most of the 2.OA and 2.NBT common core standards.
The following standards are represented:
I hope your class enjoys this math practice and review as much as mine! :)
