Math + Cards + Games = Learning + Fun!
I took every mathematics card game I have used in my classroom and put them in one fun packet! These games are a great way for students to build fluency in basic math skills. I have activities that work for grades Kindergarten through 7th grade!
Having a variety of games is a great way to individualize basic skills students need.

Card games are great community builders – students learn to work and play with anyone in their classroom. Be sure to set expectations around good sportsmanship, taking turns and (not) cheating. Many younger children will never have played card before.
Here are the 13 games you’ll get:
- Make 10 (or 20)
- Addition War
- Subtraction War
- Multiplication War
- Proper Fraction War
- Improper Fraction War
- Addition of Integers 1 (harder)
- Addition of Integers 2 (easier)
- Multiplication of Integers War
- Median War
- Mode War
- Range War
- Mean War
Scaffolding learning applies to card games, too!
I recommending removing face cards until students have mastered facts from on through nine. Then add in the face cards, but post the included chart that reminds students Kack = 11, Queen = 12, and King = 13.
