Over the past few years I've received many comments and emails from teachers asking me for games that can be used all year. They love the seasonal games, but have a hard time putting the pack away after the season has passed. I have the same feeling--and so do my students!
This pack includes 55 games that target increasing students' fact fluency and basic strategy fluency. I chose to focus on the major work of first grade (Operations & Algebraic Thinking, and Number & Operations in Base Ten) and did not include games that review number words or concepts of time, measurement, fractions, or shapes. I have included these concepts as review in many of my seasonal game packs, but did not re-purpose those games for use throughout the year.
MANY of the seasonal games my kids know and love have been re-purposed in this pack so they can be played all year long. It's full of new original games as well!
They can be used as needed to reinforce strategies or for differentiation during instruction. I often use them as weekly homework activities (parents love this and can easily help kids play and record their equations). I even use them for whole-class play on the smart board during morning meeting or math warm-up and/or spiral review. While these games are made specifically for first graders, many second grade teachers find these useful for recall and review, or for use with students that need additional practice with math fluency.
Open the preview to see a collage of all 55 games--there are too many to name! I love using this game pack in my own classroom and I'm confident you and your students will love it too!
