My kids have always loved playing games to practice their math and learn their math facts. They would beg to play “just one more round” when it was a math board game! Today I have a really cute set of math printables for practicing those tricky addition facts!
The 50-page Dragon Math Packet is for ages 4-6.
This set has 13 different math board games. These include doubling games and various addition games (adding on 2, adding on 3, etc.). Plus there are a couple of games for practicing some of the tricky problems (such as 6+7 and 8+6).
The Dragon Math Packet is about 50 pages.
Bundle Option: I have added this new packet to the Addition Bundle (see details below) or you can purchase it individually below. (If you purchased the Addition Bundle previously, look for an email from SendOwl with the link to download this new packet!)

Fact Family Packet (games and activities)
When my kids were learning their addition facts, they played a lot of games in addition to working in their math workbooks and other activities.
After my kids learned all of their doubles 1+1 through 9+9 and knew what comes after (ie. +1) and what comes before (-1) well, we started working with various fact families.
We did not go through every single Fact Family… so don’t feel like you have to have your kids play every single game and fill out every worksheet in this packet! Just pick and choose some of them. Most importantly, it should be fun!
Leave them begging to play more (rather than pushing them until they want to stop!).
You might leave some of the games for when your kids are working on their subtraction facts. But, I wanted to make all the resources available so you can pick and choose!
Why learn the fact families? Knowing their number family facts helps a lot as kids start to work more in depth on their subtraction facts!
