Today I’m going to share this Minecraft themed addition and subtraction packet that I made for my daughter. It’s free to download!
It’s the beginning of the year, so ED definitely needs some review of some of the basic addition and subtraction facts. Combine math facts with her beloved Minecraft characters and she’ll beg to “play” more!!
Although they are not presented in this order in the packet, we first used the cards first (pages 6-7) to play a board game. We printed these out on card stock and used them with the Minecraft Game Board that I made last year. You can also just make your own gameboard. This is a math gameboard we’ve used for years: First Grade Math: Games for Math Practice
So back to ED’s math review. After a couple of days of game practice, I had her do the practice page (page 2). Then we went on to use the cards on pages 7-8 to play the game for a couple of days before then pulling out page 3. (Here’s a quick view of pages 2 and 3.)
She has done a lot of pages like 4 and 5 (even during the summer), so she used those during the course of the week in addition to some of the problems in her math book. You’ll find similar sheets here at the blog.
To get these sheets, just click on the link or picture collage below. Oh, and would you mind helping me spread the word about these free sheets? I’d love it if you pinned these or spread the word on Facebook or Twitter. If you’re able to do that… thank you so much!! Hope your kids enjoy these!! ~Liesl

Note: A word about the Minecraft images in these worksheets… I wanted you all to know that I corresponded with Mojang (the company that created Minecraft) to make sure it was okay to share worksheets with these images that I drew. They said it was okay to share them free here on my blog. This is not to imply in any way that this is an endorsement from their company, but I only mention this so you know I am not violating any copyright laws by using the creeper, ocelot, and other images on these free worksheets.
