Math can be really hard sometimes. So anything that can make it fun is worth trying. Have you ever tried playing a game to help with math? Well I have a few suggestions for elementary math board games for you!  We play games a lot for math!  And I love playing them too!9 math board games

1. Math Bingo   

Whole Number Bingo

 Although I haven’t personally played this game, I’ve played many others like it. I think they are a fun, and a creative way to review math!

I love playing the Conceptual Bingo games when I don’t understand a subject in math completely. It brings a fun way to learn, and memorize it (with my mom or older brothers helping me)! 

 

Money Bingo

Money Bingo is a great way for kids to learn to calculate money values and also helps in addition and subtraction.

I always loved playing money Bingo when I was younger, I especially liked it when you also used dollars and cents to make the game more fun and easy to understand!

 

Decimal Bingo

Decimal Bingo is a fun way to incorporate decimals, which I always had trouble with, into a fun, educational game!

I always used to have trouble with decimals, this game helped me review a lot but make it fun at the same time!

2. Fraction Games

Frog Pond Fractions

Frog Pond Fractions is a great way to put fractions, into a very fun game!

Frog Pond fraction was one of my absolute favorite games, I would play it for enjoyment, It was easy to play, yet still helped in learning fractions!

Pizza Fraction Game

The Pizza Fraction game is a fun way of playing with fractions, and, for kids who like cooking (like me), it seems even more fun!

Although I don’t personally remember much about playing this game, both of my brothers say it was a lot of fun, and educational!

Fraction Fortress Game

The Fraction Fortress Game is a fun game for learning fractions!

I haven’t played this game, but I wish I had! Based on the reviews I’ve read, it sounds very fun!

3. Place Value Games

Place Value Bingo

Place Value Bingo, like all the other Bingo’s, is a fun, and educational way to learn!

Cam you tell I love Bingo Games!

Place Value Safari Game

Place Values can be tough sometimes, but games like this, always make them easier!

I haven’t personally played this game, but it looks like it would be a lot of fun!

 

Place Value Space Chase

Space Chase is a fun board game, which not only teaches Place Values, but also addition and subtraction!


 

I hope this list of games helps you!! Enjoy!

  1. Thanks for all the great math game suggestions, Blake! My youngest son is 7 and LOVES math and you’re right, it’s even better when it’s fun!

    • I also loved math at that age, especially with the games! I had a hard time with fractions for a while, but after playing a few games to help with it, I started to understand it perfectly! Thanks for leaving a comment! 🙂

    Hi Blake 🙂 Thank you for your post. I am Davis. I am 7 and homeschooled too. I will share your post with my Grandma and Grandpa. They are always wanting to know what to buy as a birthday gift. I can give them your list. Everything looks fun. My favorite to try will be Fraction Fortress. It reminds me of pizza!

    • Even though I haven’t played Fraction Fortress personally, it looks like a TON of fun to play! I might have to try it sometime 😉 Thanks for leaving a great comment!

  4. Thank you for all of your great suggestions, Blake. This is a great way for homeschooling and non-homeschooling moms to keep kids’ math skills sharp over the summer; I’ll definitely be using some of these!

    • We also used the games for that exact same reason! Sometimes we would play them for fun in the Summer, other times, we played then just to make sure we remembered what we had recently learned. 😉 Thanks for leaving a comment!

    Hi, Blake. Thanks for your helpful ideas and insight! I like your writing style. Keep up the great work!

    • Thanks! I love writing, I’m glad I could help 🙂 One of the things I used to improve my writing, was the IEW curriculum, it taught me how to write, I would suggest using it. It helps alot!
