Here’s a set of ten math games that your first graders will love, whether they play with partners or as a whole class activity. Directions are included for both ways to play! There's even a third version that one student can play independently in a math center or for extra practice at home. Your students will read numerical expressions like “12+6=18” and “2+4>8-1"” and decide whether they are true or false, “Thumbs up!" or "Thumbs down!".
