These games have been adapted for the purpose of giving teachers a variety of fun games to help teach or reinforce the multiplication facts for grades 3-5. However, they could be adapted for lower grades by changing the flashcards to whatever math facts are needed: addition, subtraction, or just numbers.
The games are versatile and can be structured to be played in the amount of time you have to play them. And, they can be used for both large or small groups.
Some of the games can be played with students at their desks or in a single line. Others are "Team" games which add a little "competition" to the game. Also, there are "Circle" games with students sitting in a circle on the floor.
Some use only Math Fact Flashcards, others use Number Cards, still others use rhythm sticks (or dowels), and a couple of the games use bean bags.
I HAVE ADDED PICTURES OF SOME OF THE GAMES BEING PLAYED TO AID IN UNDERSTANDING AND SET UP OF THE GAMES.

Everything is included except some of the "tools" needed for specific games, such as, rhythm sticks (or dowels), rubber bases for the "Baseball" game, and a bean bag. These should, however, be easy to find.
All games have been played and "tested" very favorably by my students. "Are we going to play a Math game today?" That's what I am now hearing when my students come in since we have been using these games to reinforce multiplication facts.
