Math Games to Celebrate 2015!
Happy New Year Everyone!
Hope you have had a great start to the year!
To help you celebrate the start of a new year, I have updated my New Year math games for 2015 and added a new print and play game.
There are now 4 printable games that the kids can use to celebrate the start of 2015.
These games are perfect for the first math lessons of the year!
Download the New Year Math Games 2015 Freebie at
There are 3 math board games and 1 print and play game sheet in this set.
All of the games are based around 2015!
Here is another great way to start the year with a fun, math activity!
Use 2015 as the Number of the Day! You can choose what you would like the kids to do to the number. Use the ideas above or come up with your own!
New Pick, Flip Check Cards!
You might also be interested in my new set of Pick, Flip, Check Cards.
This is the factors set which will compliment the multiples set quite well!
This set contains 32 self correcting cards. Children use clothespins to pick the factors for the given number. They then flip the card over to see if they are right.
Kids love the challenge of having all of the correct numbers picked when they flip the cards over!
The Factors Pick, Flip and Check Cards are available at
If you haven't tried any of the Pick, Flip and Check cards you might like to try these FREEBIES -

Halloween Math Ideas
This Halloween Math Puzzle Chart is easy to make. Just draw several ghost outlines on the chart or sheet of paper. Now fill each ghost with the digits from an equation. Children have to unscramble the digits to make the equation.
These are all addition equations in the chart above. In the first ghost above the equation could be 19+4=23.
Make the equations as easy or as difficult as you like! A great Halloween math challenge!
Here is a great fraction activity using Halloween words. Simply make a list of the words then have children work out the fraction of letters that are consonants and the fraction that are vowels!

Halloween Word Game
Here is a great idea for a Halloween Word Game for 2 players or 2 teams - just fill a grid with Halloween words writing across the grid. Now have the kids make words from the letters on the grid and cross off the letters as they are used. Of course they aren't allowed to use the words that have been written on the board. In the game above the first player has crossed off the letters for 'crow'.
The last player who can make a word is the winner.
