After successfully using Take Home Math Kits in my own classroom, I decided to create a cohesive set. These games promote collaboration between home and school, as well as increase student interest in mathematics.

The goal is to reinforce math concepts taught in the classroom, while being simple enough for parents to help with at home.

These games could just as easily be used solely in the classroom as early finisher activities, reinforcement, or center activities.

There are a total of 30 math kits in this unit. Most of the units address CCSS for Second Grade, although a few are just for fun. The standard addressed for each kit is located in the Table of Contents.

Each kit includes a cover for gluing to the front of a large envelope or folder, an instructions page, materials needed to complete the kit & a recording sheet.

(You will need to provide your own envelopes and/or folders)

Some of the games require additional materials such as dice or counting chips, but most can be printed and played as is.

Also included are:
Table of Contents (which includes list of kits and information on which kits require additional equipment)
Teacher's Guide
Sign Out Sheet
Parent Letter

Please view the preview to see all of the games included in this set.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces. Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.
Use addition to find the total number of objects arranged in rectangular arrays with up to 5 rows and up to 5 columns; write an equation to express the total as a sum of equal addends.
Determine whether a group of objects (up to 20) has an odd or even number of members, e.g., by pairing objects or counting them by 2s; write an equation to express an even number as a sum of two equal addends.
Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies. By end of Grade 2, know from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers.
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).
