Here’s a set of ten math games that your kindergarteners 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, count, sequence, and compare dice, dominoes, ten frames, and numerals to decide whether they are true or false, “Thumbs up!" or "Thumbs down!".

This resource includes card sets to support these topics and standards:

Sequence of Numbers 1-100: K.CC.A.1, K.CC.A.2

Match Numeral to Domino: K.CC.B.5

Match Numeral to Ten Frame: K.CC.B.5

Represent Addition with Fingers: K.OA.A.1

Match Ten Frame to Domino: K.CC.B.5

Number Bonds 0-5: K.OA.A.5

Represent Addition & Subtraction with Objects, K.OA.A.1

Model Addition with Dice Dots and Match to an Equation: K.OA.A.1

Match Ten Frames to Numerals, 11-20, K.CC.A.3

These games are a great way to pre-assess or to review before final assessment. They're an easy-to-prepare math center activity. They’re also helpful for spiraled review throughout the year!

The set includes two colorful game boards in ten-frame format, a single-page sorting mat which can be used by one student, ten sets of 24 cards each to practice the skills listed above, and a even a fun printable to turn the card sets into an active, whole-class activity. A self-checking answer key is provided for each game. Your students can provide a written record of their work with the response page that is also included.

The Common Core Standards for each game are printed on each set of cards for your convenience.
