Workshop Wednesday: Math Games! - Ideas By Jivey: For the Classroom

Workshop Wednesday: Math Games!

I'm so excited about this week's Workshop Wednesday!

I absolutely LOVE finding and/or creating new math games for my kiddos to play, so today's topic is: What math games do you and your kiddos love to play? Share and promote! :)

The first game I will share with you is called Witzzle Pro. I adapt it for my classroom, but the actual directions that come with the game are really fun, too!! The way I play in my room: no dice are needed...each set of partners gets a card (see above). I give them a range of numbers that I want them to find equations for (like 10-20). They must use order of operations to create at least one problem that will have an answer for each number in that range. All of the numbers must stay in order either forwards, backwards, horizontal, vertical, or diagonal! For example, the card standing up by itself in the picture above... the top row could be used this way:
but NOT: 5-1+6=10 because the numbers would be out of order.

The kids have a lot of fun with it and it's a GREAT way to practice order of operations!

I've also created some math games for use in my room. All of these are FREE in my TPT store, so feel free to click on the pictures of them to download them. These games are also included in my Common Core Math Units that I've created- along with other games, lessons, and fun activities of course. :)

Simplify Fractions Game

Partial Product Multiplication Game

Division With Remainders Game

Make One Whole With Decimals Game

Can't wait to see the games you all share! Please link up to your blog ONLY (links within your blog can go to stores, of course). Make sure to also grab the banner and link back to my blog, please! Let's follow Farley's Rule of 3! :)


  1. I look forward to trying your "Make One Whole" game when we get to decimals.

    I know I linked up but don't see it...can you see it on your end?


  2. My kids and I just played your make one whole game today! Too funny that I didn't realize it was from you! Thanks for the linky!

  3. I know I'm late, but I figured I'd at least make a comment! My kids love ANY game that involves expo markers and writing on the tables. They particularly like making equivalent fractions on the tables... so simple.. who would have thought?!

    Love your blog, by the way!
