Simple Math Games to Practice Counting

Here are some simple counting games that are great for the beginning of the year and to do review!  The games are easy to prep and set up!

We like to send kiddos around the room in partner pairs to work to complete each of these number tasks or games. Later, we like to leave them out in our math center area to be pulled out during other free work times.

120 Number Puzzles
Color code each set of numbers using different colors of card stock. Cut the numbers apart and put them into zip bags labeled with the number range. Kiddos go around the room and put the set of numbers in counting order. Once finished with one set, they move around to another set!

1-30 Counting Mats
Print each mat. Lay them out with a small collection of objects. Kiddos will count and place the correct number of objects on each number mat.

Counting Task Cards
Print the task cards. Kiddos will practice counting on from any number.

  3. What elements push a game beyond mere goodness and into greatness? To this author, PC games are best when they deliver a transcendent gaming experience that is possible only with the aid of a personal computer: They don't simulate board or card games, reproduce real-world sports, or try to approximate movies. They are an art form unto themselves. To be considered, a game must have achieved most of its prominence on a PC platform. (This explains why Tetris, for example, didn't make the cut: It was clearly the Nintendo Game Boy's killer app). I defined a "PC" as any consumer computer that has a keyboard the user can program with arbitrary code--not just a PC of the IBM variety.
