# Free Addition Facts Game

I am so thrilled to introduce you to the 2nd grade blogging team!!!! Every Thursday this school year we will be gathering together to share tips, tricks and activities that we are using with our 2nd graders! (Can you believe that Jaida is a 2nd grader!?!?!? Seems like yesterday we were talking about reviewing the alphabet & building CVC words!) At the end of this post you can find all of our fun activities for this week. This free addition facts game is a fun way to review addition for the beginning of the year!

### To prep:

This game is super easy to prepare!

Print the game board on paper or card stock. Then print the 2 pages of cards on the white side of scrapbook paper (so they aren’t see-through.)

Then laminate all the pieces for durability and cut out the cards.

### To play:

Place your marker on the “Start” pencil holder. Place all the cards upside-down on the “Card Draw Pile”.

Choose a player to go first.

The player will draw the top card from the pile and move to the first space with the matching picture. Play continues to the next player.

If a player lands on a space with an arrow, he will follow the arrow to the new space.

If a “apple” card is drawn the player will head to the closest apple space, even if it is behind him.

To win by landing on the last 10, a player MUST draw a card that equals 10 from the pile.

Please note: This game only covers facts that add from 5-10 because they are the more challenging addition facts. Since I made this for a 2nd grade review game, I didn’t want to include problems like 1+1.

This is a great game for reviewing before progressing into double-digit addition and addition with re-grouping. The kids need to have a strong basis of the math facts before going further so that they don’t get frustrated by always needing to figure the basic math facts.

While memorization of random facts isn’t the best way to learn most subjects, with math, after the kids have an understanding of the “why”s behind addition, it really is necessary to memorize the facts.
