March Madness math games . . . yes, please!!! Looking for a theme to help bridge that gap from St. Pat's to Easter?? March Madness is the perfect theme. Sports are always a no-brainer hook for kiddies!!!

My goal with this packet was to create a series of common core flavored math games and activities that were perfect for those long spring afternoons. Engaging was the name of the game as I created these. We're talkin' everything from place value relay races and math "time outs" to timed addition hunts {watch out for the shot clock buzzer} and garbage can basketball sorts. Yup. I went way out of the box on this one ;) However, despite all the fun, the rigor is still present . . . PROMISE!

This collection targets all of those critical mid to end of the year concepts that your babes must master before walking out your door. I designed this packet to meet 1st and 2nd grade classroom needs and many of the templates are EDITABLE!

This Packet Includes 9 Engaging Activities:
Hoop It Up Tournament (Place Value)
