December is always a crazy teaching month. To combat the mayhem we play *a lot* of games and spend this time reviewing what we’ve learned during the first half of the year!

I recently sent out these 3 **free** games in my monthly newsletter and I wanted to share them with you here in case anyone didn’t receive them.

Here is a quick overview and video of how to play each game:

###### Down the Chimney:

This game review addition with three addends. Students simply choose a chimney and take turns rolling 3 dice to find the sum. They will cover their sum on their chimney and continue until one student goes down their chimeny first (by covering all the sums).

###### Grab the Gifts:

The subtraction game has 2 different game boards (a 10 and a 15). With the 15 game board – seen below – students roll 2 dice, find the sum, and subtract that number from 15 to find the difference. I like this type of game because it has students practicing multistep problem-solving. The 10 game board is a bit simpler and has students rolling one die and subtracting that from 10 to find the difference. Whenever they find a difference, they cover that gift with their color cube until all gifts are covered. Whoever colored the most, wins!

###### Light the Candles:

The game is a phonics one and has students identifying the beginning digraph of a word. Students race to be the first to identify and light the candles on their side of the menorah!

You can grab all three of these games for *free* by signing up for my newsletter below. Just click the image.

The games will be delivered right to your inbox!
