First Grade Math Games

Here are some good reasons why Math games score highly over using worksheets.

- Using games is a great way to learn Math facts and develop mental calculation skills in an easy way.
- Games are usually fun and very motivating to play.
- In most games there are a whole lot of other skills involved in playing the game that kids will also pick up, such as strategic thinking.
- Playing games is usually much better at getting kids to engage in math talk and discuss their learning than using worksheets.

Our Math Games First Grade e-booklet is a booklet containing 26 games designed for first graders.

There is a wide selection of games to develop a range of math concepts from place value to addition and subtraction to strategic thinking.

Playing games is a great way to develop math skills and math fact recall in a fun and enjoyable way.

Each of our games comes with clear instructions to play and also a Variations section which gives you ideas for making the game easier or harder, or just changing the rules to make it more interesting.

For most games, only dice and counters are needed.

The ebooklet comes in the form of a pdf download delivered straight to your computer.

We have now improved the navigation system on all of our e-books so that it is much easier to find the game you are looking for.
