    Grade 1 math games
    By Jillian

    Place Value--take ten popsicle sticks-on one side draw ten dots and on the other side draw one dot. Students then take the ten sticks and drop them on their desk/floor. They have to figure out their number by seperating the sticks that are showing the ten dots from the one dots.

    Number Recognition --create a 100 chart for each student, mount it on thick paper and laminate if possible. Each student will have bingo chips or paper squares. The teacher will create a design on the grid (house, pumpkin..) wihtout showing the students. The teacher will call out the numbers required for that picture. You can make it more difficult later by saying "the number in between 67 and 69" or " 2 more than 5". The students really like to see what the picture will be.

    Adding/Subtracting --take egg cartons and write or place numbers 1-6 in each row. Place two bingo chips in each egg carton. Students close the carton and shake the chips around. When they open the carton they must add or subtract the numbers together. We play this alone as well as with basic board games so they can see themselves mover toward the finish line.

    Hope these help.
