French Numbers Games for practice of Les Nombres / Les Numeros vocabulary to 100 in mental math calculations ('Les Maths'). Students will add, subtract, multiply, and divide, to get four correct answers in a row in these fun printable activities. Boards 1-4 feature more challenging calculations with numbers to 100. Boards 5 and 6 feature only numbers to 40 and mostly less challenging calculations (ideal differentiation for younger, lower ability, or less experienced students).
Print the color or black and white versions on paper or card stock (and Answer Keys if required) and laminate to use again and again. The boards work especially well printed 11x17, however Letter size is fine too. Instructions for students are also included. To get children more familiar with French numbers it is great to get them playing around with them in some French math. It works well for bell ringers / early finishers tasks for math lessons too.
You might be interested in my interactive PowerPoint lesson presentation with around 70 slides (with additional slides for a bingo game), scaffolding learning step-by-step of French numbers to 100 and related phrases. This includes an introduction to French mental math.

Work with a partner against another pair or as an individual against another individual to get four correct answers in a row (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally).
Roll a die to find which column to choose a calculation from (the columns are numbered 1-6). If there are no unanswered calculations left in the column you’ve rolled, roll again.
Use different color dry wipe markers to your opponent to record your answer in the correct space on the laminated board or, if using the same color marker, add an initial or symbol.
The mental math vocabulary used in these games is: plus (add), moins (subtract), fois (multiply by), divisé par (divide by).
