I remember doing Mad Minutes growing up.  I was pretty good at Math, and I loved the chance to challenge myself and show up my classmates (not nice I know ). My first grader is good at math, but he gets lazy doing the work. Making practicing his addition and subtraction a fun game seems do the trick.

Mad minutes can be done timed or untimed.  These are great for adding some extra practice.

  • basic addition
  • 0-20 addition
  • basic subtraction
  • subtraction 0-20
  • combined subtraction & addition worksheets

First Grade Math Worksheets

I highly recommend putting these 1st grade math worksheets in page protectors or laminating to use over and over! (Note: I’ve noticed that off brand laminator sheets do not wipe clean as nicely. We will be sticking with the Scotch laminator sheets going forward!)

If you have older children, here are the links to FREE Mad Minutes for older grades:

So how in the world do you play Mad Minutes math game?  Give you child a printable 1st grade math worksheets upside down. Now time how long it takes them to complete their worksheets.

They are called MAD minute because it can be done in one minute, but the goal is not only math practice, improved acuuracy, and math fluency —> but for your child to become more confident in math!

Write down on the back of the worksheet how long it took them to complete it. That is their benchmark. Correct the free 1st grade math worksheets together to make sure they learn the correct answer to the addition and subtraction equations.

Now have your first grader do the same worksheet again Tuesday.  Write down their new time; don’t be surprised if their time is slightly longer today…. usually the accuracy goes up some but it gets a little slower on day 2.

Day 3, repeat with the same mad minutes worksheet for grade 1. Again, write down their time and accuracy. Repeat this on day 4 and on Day 5 challenge your student to beat their time and accuracy. You will be amazed at how both their speed and accuracy improves over the week.
