Kindergarten Math Game of the Month
Our recommended Kindergarten Math Game for the month is Roll and Record. In this game, players practice their addition facts as they add numbers from 1-12. Of the game, our Kindergarten Teacher, Clare Maloney, says, "Around January we are doing the Marble Factory unit. So I would say 'Roll and Record' 2-12 and 3-18 would be great!"

1st Grade Math game of the month
Our recommended 1st Grade Math Game of the month is Counters in a Cup. In this game, players practice combinations of 10 by hiding counters in a cup. Of the game, our 1st Grade Teacher Nicole Caraboolad says, "It would be great to highlight the game 'Counters in a Cup.' The game is on the website, the children will be playing it in the classroom, and it was featured at game night... This game is also just a fun game to practice missing parts problems because the kids get to hide counters."
