In recent weeks I have been developing resources for both my perservice teachers and the classroom teachers I work with. I will be sharing these resources with you each week in the new feature called Monday Math Freebies. This week I'm sharing two games that require nothing more than a game board, markers/chips for each player, and two dice.

Fishing for Numbers is a simple, quick game where students practice basic facts in addition and subtraction while using problem solving strategies. The first player rolls two dice and says the numbers. Then he/she looks at the empty spaces on the board and decides whether to ADD the numbers or SUBTRACT the numbers. Once a choice is made, the player says the number sentence aloud and places his/her marker over the answer. Play alternates in this fashion until one player covers all the spaces on his/her board.

Monkey Madness: Three to Win! is a simple, quick game where students practice basic facts in addition, subtraction and multiplication while using problem solving strategies. The first player rolls two dice and says the numbers. Then he/she looks at the empty spaces on the board and decides whether to ADD the numbers, SUBTRACT the numbers, or MULTIPLY the numbers. Once a choice is made, the player says the number sentence aloud and places his/her marker over the answer. If a player rolls doubles, he/she must cover one of the monkey on the board. Play alternates until one player gets three markers in a row, vertically, horizontally or diagonally.
