Math Folder Games

I've finally gotten the chance to make all the math folders games for my kiddos and they. are. loving. them. I gave them a preview of some a couple weeks ago and they have been asking and asking when they are done. Now they are asking me to make them some to take home :) 

Circus Fun 

These are great games that are easy to make and are 'grab and go' for kids. The rules are pretty much the same for every game but they don't really think about it because there are different versions!

 There are 16 different versions of 28 Common Core Standard Games ranging from Kindergarten to Fifth Grade. Each game comes with a colorful cover, a standards card with a kid friendly I Can sentence on it, a rules card, a two piece board game, a set of game cards, and an optional worksheet to keep kids accountable when playing.

Oz's Wizard

Can't Catch Me - Dodge all the characters as the Gingerbread Man to win!
