Who doesn’t love a game? In the math classroom, games offer an engaging alternative to worksheets, allowing students to work with others and have fun while learning. Math games are extremely versatile and can be used in cooperative learning teams, in small group instruction, or in math centers. The key to using math games effectively in the classroom is to develop clear and specific management systems and procedures. Tips for Teaching with Math Games includes tips for teaching social skills, organizing and management games, and using them in cooperative learning teams and math centers.

Math Games Mega Bundle - Fun and Effective Math Games
You can create your own math games, but they are time-consuming to make. If you don't have the time or the desire to create your own, check out the collection of math games in my Math Games Mega Bundle.

I LOVE creating math games that are engaging, fun, and most importantly, effective learning tools. All of my math games are appropriate for upper elementary students, and many can be adapted for younger or older students by changing the task cards. Each game includes teacher directions, ready-to-use printable game materials, and answer keys. Some of the games also include QR code answers as well as traditional answer key.
