I love using all sorts of fun games when practicing addition (or really any math skill) in first grade. The game I am sharing today is a particularly easy one to prep and implement in your classroom right away. It is called Biggest Wins!
All you need to play this game is a die and a paper (like the one shown in the video). I have this game-sheet already made for you in my Print, Play Learn Math Games unit, but this one is easy enough to recreate which is why I shared it!
Just watch the video below to see how to play. If you are a 2nd grade teacher, I share plenty of ways to differentiate this game to suit your needs as well. Towards the end of the video, I also share how to flip this game and make it work for subtraction too:
If you like games, like the one shown above, be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel. I share a new game every Sunday!

Looks like fun!
Another great idea – thank you!!
Love the above game!
I look forward to your Sunday Spotlights. It would be amazing to meet you in person… maybe at a Math PD…. (hint hint). LOL
You are an inspiration for me.
Thank you, I am always looking for ways to build automaticity of number facts by using addition or subtraction games. My students enjoy working with a partner.
