This packet contains nine seasonal game boards for a one-digit addition dice game. This game covers sums from 1-12. This partner game offers great practice for addition fact fluency and could be implemented into math lessons, small group lessons, or math centers. Since the game stays the same throughout the school year (only the graphics change), it will save you time teaching students a new game. Simply change the game pieces and board each month, and your students will stay engaged!
*9 Seasonal Game Boards with 3 Alternative Boards for October, November, and December
*August/September: Back-to-School Theme
*October: Halloween (Candy Corn and a Spider) Theme and an Alternative Pumpkin Theme

*January: Snowmen Theme

Here is how this game works:
*2 Die (Numbers 1-6)
*22 Game Pieces (11 for each student) (I use seasonal erasers from Target!)
Players per game:
1. Each student picks a side of the game board.
2. Each student covers their side with a game piece on each number.
3. Partners take turns rolling two die and adding the two numbers together. Whatever the sum is, they uncover that number on their side of the board. The first player to uncover all of their pieces wins. If the student rolls a sum already uncovered, they can not remove any game piece during that turn.
**Creation Tip: Print and laminate and these boards will last you for several years!**
Common Core Objectives covered in this packet are: K.OA.A.5 and 1.OA.C.6
