Odd Even Multi Purpose Game

I love math games that have many different concepts in one game, so I made this one.  I've given directions for addition/subtraction but this game can be used with almost all of the concepts we teach in first grade (and beyond).  I've posted many games on here, so you can always go back to some of the other games and get playing cards from them, especially place value cards.  Time and money can be used in a variety of ways!  So, I hope this is helpful to some.  I know my kids will love this as we've been working on odd/even with 2 digit numbers.  Enjoy!

Easy Beginning Subtraction Game

Here is a VERRRRYYYYY easy game I made for my kids that need support with beginning subtraction.  It's a roll and record that involves just 2 dice.  Each player has a die, throws it and then between the 2 they solve the subtraction math fact.  So if they roll a  4 and a 6, the answer is 2.  On the recording sheet they go to the 2 column and write 6-4.  They just keep working until they fill in the entire paper.  Later I will remake this with facts up to 10 and then to 20.  I know many have probably already covered this, but I hope it will be useful to some.  Using the dice method, the 6 column will not get filled in.  So, you can also use number cards 0 to 6 for this.

Snowflake Sight Word Toss

Here's another sight word toss that is like the Santa one from before Christmas.  This time I added a recording sheet for the kids.  I hope your kids enjoy this!
