This set of 30 spring and summer math games for end of year in first grade focuses on addition, subtraction, place value, and geometry. Each easy prep game is designed to be played by partners and is just one page, with no cards to print!

Here's what this math game set includes!

* 30 one page addition, subtraction, and place value board games in color

* The same 30 games in ink-saving black and white

* A family letter explaining the games, giving you the opportunity to send a math game as a homework alternative

Here are the first grade math topics addressed in these games:

✅ 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

These games are 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!

How can you use these spring math games with your students?

* Use math games instead of worksheets for review! Games are fun and engaging, and your students will be motivated to play them again and again!

* Play a game of Teacher vs. The Class on your interactive board at the start of a lesson. A great way to review and to focus your students' attention!

* Fill your math tubs and math centers with these games for math spiral review.

* Homeschoolers love math games!

* 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.

* Math intervention and RtI teachers use these games to practice and review with second graders.

* For a fun homework alternative, pack a game in a zip top bag along with an erasable marker, a pair of dice, and the parent letter included in this file. Families love them!

* Use the games for summer school programs with rising second graders.

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.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Count to 120, starting at any number less than 120. In this range, read and write numerals and represent a number of objects with a written numeral.
Given a two-digit number, mentally find 10 more or 10 less than the number, without having to count; explain the reasoning used.
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.)
Understand subtraction as an unknown-addend problem. For example, subtract 10 – 8 by finding the number that makes 10 when added to 8.
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).
