Why Is It Important For Kids To Play Addition Games?

Children learn best when the learning feels easy and fun. Playing math games encourages practice with addition sentences, vocabulary, number sense and more while cleverly disguised as a fun game!

Number Sense: Playing math games improves numbers sense which is the ability to understand, compare/contrast, and relate numbers to each other.

Automaticity: When children effortlessly (automatically) know basic math facts, it makes more complex computations easier.

Vocabulary: Encouraging kids to use math vocabulary while playing games (sum/difference/total/greater than/less than)is a meaningful way to practice.

Cooperative Learning: Simple games with partners or small groups give kids a lot of practice with social skills, like taking turns, following rules, and winning/losing.

Word Problems

It’s never too early to start introducing simple word problems. Instead of always using addition sentences, throw in stories at snack time, when lining up, or at circle time each day.

Subtraction Facts

Learning addition goes hand in hand with subtraction. Teach your kids that subtraction is the opposite of addition! Working on addition and subtraction facts together helps kids compare and contrast.

Fact Fluency Games

Once kids understand single digit addition worksheets, they need to develop math facts fluency. How? Games, of course! Engage kids with games to promote automaticity with both addition and subtraction math facts.
