This week I brought out a math game board to go over some math facts with the kids. The great thing about this board is that the kids can practice any math skill they’re working on.
A player can start on any green start space. If she answers a math fact card correctly, she rolls the die and moves clockwise around the gameboard. If she lands on a space such as double move or draw again, she gets to take another turn (and another) until she lands on a space (such as stay put or a start space) when she can’t go any farther. The first person to land on one of the win spaces wins the game!
I played this yesterday with DD. She’s still working on getting her multiplication facts down cold — and we played four games — going through probably 30 problems without one complaint!
I made some matching cards for ED who is working on doubling (1+1 through 9+9) and addition with +1 or +2. I also have a blank page where you could fill in your own math problems.

Here are some fun outdoor math games that we played when the weather warmed up last year. They are good for *any* math practice!:
