Number sense in kindergarten and first grade is where we usually start in our math instruction. To help students become more fluent in their understanding of numbers, I have three fun math games students can play to practice.

All three games are SUPER simple. You’ll just need to print and play. I particularly like these games, because they are very easy to make seasonal. Instead of cubes, you can use Halloween erasers. You can grab seasonal stamps! In the video I share below, I explain how I use them during the Halloween season, but I also share tips on making them easy-to-use all year long!

Take a few minutes and see how to play all three games below:

After you watch the video and see how to play, you can grab all the printables here >>> recording sheets.

If you happen to like these games, you’ll also love these blog posts about other number sense activities:
