Thanksgiving Math Games

Keep the kids busy with fun, engaging math games in the lead up to Thanksgiving! This is math that they will enjoy!
Here are a few of the games from Thanksgiving Math Games First Grade.          









Phonics Puzzle with Popsicle Sticks

Here is a really simple puzzle that I made to get kids reading and rhyming with basic CVC words!
This puzzle is easy to make and easy for kids to use. To make the puzzle write 'Start here' on the left end of a stick and add a word on the right end. Continue building the puzzle adding more sticks under the first. You will need to add a rhyming word and a new word on each stick.
Once it is done give it to the kids to put together!
This is a great way to get kids reading CVC words and rhyming CVC words!
Simple to make, easy to use and fun too! That has to be a winner!

Want more Halloween Math Fun?
Check out this simple Halloween Math Puzzle that I made -
This one is sure to get kids thinking! They have to create an addition equation from the numbers in each ghost. With the first one 1, 2, 4, 9 and 3 you could make 32+9=41.
Make your own by drawing several ghost shapes on a large sheet of paper then write the digits for an equation in each. You can choose equations that are as simple or as complex as you like.
It also works for subtraction, multiplication or division equations.
