Ahh!!  Where has the time gone?!?!  I can't believe we are down to the last few days of November and the Holiday Rush is now HERE!!  Well to help get in the spirit of the holiday's at school, I re-created an addition fluency game to have a jazz of holiday!! 

Santa's Helper and Holiday Helper are games of addition fluency!  They are aligned with the Common Core and will help your students gain fluency in addition facts up to 12.  Check then out in my TpT Store or by clicking the pictures below!  

*Please note, they are basically the same games!  After I created Santa's Helper I felt I should re-name it to be sensitive to those who don't believe in SANTA!!

Turkey Hunt Math Game!

Here it is!  Turkey Hunt!

My First Graders continue to ask NON-STOP "When can we play MONSTER MASH?" so I decided to make a new version with a TURKEY theme!

Same idea as Monster Mash, the students play on level 1 or 2 game boards and roll dice to add addition facts up to 12 or 20, and "catch" turkeys!

I've seen so much improvement with their addition fluency and they are always so excited to practice their facts this way!  I'm already thinking of a new version with a HOLIDAY Theme where they play to help SANTA!  Check back soon!

Monster Smash Math Game! Addition!

With so much of the common core's focus being on fluency, I've been trying to give my kids lots of experiences with addition facts in fun, interactive and engaging ways. So Monster Smash was born! The kids LOVE this game and ask me to play it ALL the time. The object of the game is to "catch" the most monsters by solving addition equations rolled on dice. I've created two levels. Level one focused on facts to 12 and level two focuses on facts up to 20!   Check it out in my TpT store!

My kids have enjoyed this game so much I've decided to create more seasonal versions of the game! Look for them soon!
