A K–8 resource to support deep comprehension of math skills and concepts
Topics:

March 23, 2016

I'm always on the lookout for fun and fresh math games for elementary students. Today I'm sharing three printable math games you can download, print, and then add to your classroom math center. Once your students know how to play these elementary math games, you can include them as one of the math center games that you won’t need to directly supervise!

Go Fish Place Value Math Game (K–3)

The first of the elementary math games is Go Fish!. This activity is a place value math game for elementary students where base-ten blocks are used to represent numbers. Students should be able to decompose two-digit numbers into tens and ones. The printable math game includes cards and a sheet to record for students to record their “Go Fish” matches.

Wild West Checkers Math Game (Grades 2–5)

The second of the math games for elementary classrooms I have available for download is Wild West Checkers. Using the idea of checkers, students complete two-digit addition or subtraction problems in order to advance to a certain square. To “jump” a piece or travel two squares, students must complete two of the problems. This printable math game includes student instructions and two game boards, one with addition and one with subtraction problems.

“Who Am I?” Math Card Game (Grades 3–5)

The last printable math game I have is a game that reinforces fraction concepts called “Who Am I?” With this game, students are given cards with a list of fractions and some clues. The goal of the game is to rule out certain fractions on the list as the student use the clues. This math center game is a very simple game where students can work independently and record their answers in their math journals for teachers to check.
