I am always on the go from one student's house to a college library to an elementary school and back to another student's house. Since I have to travel with my classroom in my briefcase, I love classic games that I can tailor to the age and subject of my students. My latest craze: a deck of cards.
Education.com has a huge and great list of fun math games with a deck of cards like Subtraction War and Ten-Twenty-Thirty. The best thing about these games is how they get the creative juices flowing! I played War with my 3rd grader and then used the same deck of cards to practice fractions and mixed numbers with my 7th grader. Before I knew it, my kids were coming up with math games all by themselves.
|War adapted on the spot to practice mixed and improper fractions!|
Here is the link to some second grade math games (but all of these can be tailored to ANY age group or subject!) I did multiplication drills in Spanish with one of my middle schoolers to keep her on her toes. I hope you enjoy the games!
Let us know what you tried with your deck of cards and your students in the comments! I love getting new ideas! :)
