This is a pdf file that contains 4 math center activities. They are geared to be used from kindergarten to 2nd grade and my students love them!
Game #1 - One More: I use this game during math centers and my students love it! Two students can play and the object of the game is to cover five squares in a row with markers. This game is a great way to introduce simple addition. Each player rolls one die and then adds 1 to the number they rolled. They are to then cover the corresponding square.
Game #2 - All About the Number: This can be completed by one or two students working together. I start by giving them one die and a blank printout of the activity. After rolling one number, they are to write it in the blank star at the top of the page. They can then work to fill in the rest of the blanks. This activity is great for independent work also.
Game #3 - Roll and Count: I love this buddy game because it helps with counting, adding and identifying shapes. Students pair up and roll two dice. Each play takes turns counting the dots on the dice and finding the shape that corresponds to the number. Once they find the number, they have to name the shape and then color it in.
Game #4 - Roll and Draw: This is another great game that can be played by one or two students. I have played it with one and two dice depending on the student. Using one die, this game can be used to practice basic counting skills. After rolling a number, it is to be written in the star and then the student is to draw a picture that corresponds to the number. If you would like to make this game more difficult, you can have your students roll two dice and then add up the numbers after they draw the pictures. Both ways have been successful in my classroom.
