Did you know this is the fifth bundle of math games in my Print & Play series with This Reading Mama? Each week, I design a series of low-prep math games that review a particular math concept. The games progress from simple to more challenging.
You only need to grab a few materials, print, and play!
And perhaps best of all, these are one player games perfect for classroom learning centers or learning right at the kitchen table.
This week I’m sharing five Roll & Cover games to help your child practice addition. Are you familiar with Roll & Cover games? Just roll the dice, add the numbers, and cover or dot the answer on the board. When all the numbers are covered, the game is over.
I’ll admit that this set of games requires a tiny bit more preparation than all the others. You’ll need to find two blank cubes that you can label with different numbers than what you find on a standard die. You can also cut mailing labels to cover the sides of a regular die. Write on them with a permanent marker.
Personally, I think that buying these blank dice was a great idea! I love having them on hand for games like this one.
My Five (going into kindergarten) played Game 2. In this game, we used two blank dice labeled 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, and 3. Since addition isn’t his strength yet, adding these low numbers was perfect for him. He dotted the answers with a Do-a-Dot marker (which we love, by the way!).
My Six (going into first grade) played Game 4. This is the only board that uses two standard dice.
Finally, my Eight (entering third grade) played the hardest game. We labeled each of our blank dice with the numbers 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10.
Have fun with our free addition games!
