I'm getting ready to teach place value and made a couple of games to play with my kindergarten class.
Grab your freebies here:
The first game is a simple matching game. Match the place value card (with base 10 cubes) to the numeral on the igloo card. I printed sets of these on 3 different colors of card stock so that if a stray card gets lost I can easily find the game it goes to. I store these cards in ziplock baggies and put them in a math center.
For the next game there is a little prep work. First, gather some cotton balls, and put game boards in protective sleeves or laminate them. This game re-uses the base 10 cards (print another few sets for this game or just re-use the cards from the matching game).
To play, students place cards face down in a pile. Then they draw a card from the pile, count to figure out the number it represents and then cover up the number by putting a "snowball" (cotton ball) on game board. The game is over when all of the numbers are covered.
Here is a little sweetie putting "snowballs on the game board. :)
I hope you find these games fun and useful. If you like them, stop by and leave a comment! :) Thanks!
