My students’ favorite Math Fact Fridays are always when we get to play games. Any time I see playing cards (especially themed) in the Target “1-spot”, I buy them. Something about that 1-spot has me addicted! (See what I do with the file folders here!) I’ve also found plain playing cards and a set of six dice there! I now have Hello Kitty, Cars, and plain playing cards.
Playing cards are easy resources for math games because they are so cheap and versatile. You can write the directions on the board or print a hand out for each student to keep in their binder. These math games can be used as a warm-up, a treat for the end of the day on Friday (which is what I usually did), or a station.
