Reproducible or make-your own math games?


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a book or website that has math games that can be printed out? Something like file-folder games maybe? I'm trying to find some fun ways to practice math facts. We have done no formal math yet (dd just turned 6), but I like to use math games.


We already own Games for Math by Peggy Kaye (which I love) and I'm not going to buy Rightstart games (or whatever they are called). I feel certain someone will suggest these two.

I love the Evan-Moor "Take It To Your Seat" Math Centers. You can buy the book and it has full-color games/activities that you put together in a folder or envelope. My kids love them, and since I've only got three "students", I pass them around to friends for their kids to use, too. Maybe you could get a few other moms together to help pay for the book and share them? The books cost $20-$30 each, but they are well worth it.


Evan-Moor also makes these for Writing, Vocabulary, Literacy, Geography, Science, and Phonics. There may be more, but that's all I can think of right now :001_smile:

There are also tons of game ideas in the yahoo group GamesForLearning, and a few more atGames4Learning. Don't forget to check the files, too.


Here's a list I made up years back. Haven't used the ones at the bottom, but there are lots of good ones in the list.


http://www.webeans.net/hutt/home.htm There are some games you can print out and laminate or cover in contact paper here. This is where

the states and capitals concentration game we used in math/geography games came from. There are many more here...


http://justdawne.tripod.com/index.htm Another site with printables and ideas.


http://www.educationalpress.org/educationalpress/ Create flashcards, gameboards, quizzes, bingo and more. Just fill in the info you want to study!



http://www.activityvillage.co.uk/learning_games.htm More games to print, many for younger kids.


http://www.worldvillage.com/wv/gamezone/puzzlegen/ Make your own word search.


http://www.tjgames.com/games.html There are some games using alphabet cards. You can print the cards for free. Also other games, but

I haven't used them yet.


http://www.startdl.com/ Haven't really searched this site as it looks like it's for older kids/adults. It says it's exercise for the mind.

Anagrams, calculations, decoding, cryptorelated stuff, etc.


http://kootweb.com/games.html Board games for older kids.


http://home.att.net/~bandcparker/games.html A page that tells how to use games for education. Very nice homeschool family site.
