#2 Concentration

I love this game for building memory and helping children learn to pay attention to details. For this game, all you need to do is choose the sets you want to use, or use all the cards. Next place the cards on the table face down. Children then take turns flipping over two cards at a time. If the cards have an expression and a number that equals the sum of the expression, the player collects those two cards….and they get another turn. When all the cards have been collected, the player with the most cards wins!

Go Eat Kindergarten Math Game for Christmas

Gingerbread Math

#3 Go Eat

Since there aren’t any fish on the cards, I’m calling this Go Eat…as in go grab another gingerbread to eat. This game is for two players. To begin, each player draws five cards from the pile of gingerbread men. They then take turns asking each other for a card.

For example, player one may have a 2+3 in their hand. They would ask the other player if they have a five. If player two has a five then they must hand it over, and player one places their match on the table. If player two doesn’t have it, they simply say “Go Eat!”. Player one must draw a card from the pile.

A player may also ask for an expression. If they have a gingerbread man with five on it, they can ask for a 3 + 2. The other player must give up any card that has 2 + 3 or 3 + 2 on it.

The game ends when a player no longer has cards in their hand. That player counts the number of cards they were able to match. THe other player counts the cards they matched but must subtract the number of cards left in their hand from the total.

The player with the largest number of matches wins.
