This set of 30 spring math games for first grade addresses topics in addition and subtraction, place value, and geometry. Each single-page game is designed to be played by partners and is easy-prep and “self-contained” – there are no cards to print!

If you're sending home packs of printables or emailing resources to parents to print, these low-prep activities are ideal - less paper, less ink, and able to be used again and again. For digital teaching, display the games on any screen and use your own apps to create playing pieces and board markers.

These games are also kind to your ink concerns – less than 20% of each page is in color, plus a blackline version of each game is also included. If you choose to use the blackline version, you can have your students color them before using them in your math centers. The blacklines are also terrific to send as family math homework! A parent letter explaining this is also included in your purchase.

Ideal for use in your math centers, these games are also great for homeschoolers, tutors, and math interventionists. Featuring graphics like sunshine, playgrounds, ice cream, sailboats, kites, and frogs, these games are great for seasonal learning, but can be used all year long.

For your convenience, the relevant Common Core standard is printed right on each game.

The topics covered in these games are...

* Addition through 20

* Subtraction through 20

* Mixed addition and subtraction

* Three addends

* Combinations of ten

* Adding and subtracting ten and multiples of ten

* Place value

* Fractions

Determine the unknown whole number in an addition or subtraction equation relating three whole numbers. For example, determine the unknown number that makes the equation true in each of the equations 8 + ? = 11, 5 = ▯ - 3, 6 + 6 = ▯.
Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 - 4 = 13 - 3 - 1 = 10 - 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 - 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13).
Understand subtraction as an unknown-addend problem. For example, subtract 10 – 8 by finding the number that makes 10 when added to 8.
Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract. If 8 + 3 = 11 is known, then 3 + 8 = 11 is also known. (Commutative property of addition.) To add 2 + 6 + 4, the second two numbers can be added to make a ten, so 2 + 6 + 4 = 2 + 10 = 12. (Associative property of addition.)
Given a two-digit number, mentally find 10 more or 10 less than the number, without having to count; explain the reasoning used.
