I’m a pretty big sucker for finding a good deal and mixing it up a bit. I was in Target the other day and they had the “Let’s Go Fishing” game on sale, so I bought it. I actually had no idea what I was going to use if for, but I knew something would pop into my head in no time. I decided to place numbers 0-10 on the bottoms of the fish. I could use it for a variety of math games. They could fish for two numbers and add them together to get a sum, compare the fish numbers, and doubles.
My kids always struggle with the doubles concept in math, so I figured this would be a great opportunity to make a fun game for math center time. They go fishing for a fish and write the number in the first box and double it in the second box. They continue to fish until all the fish are gone. I like this game because it would be played in a small group, pairs, or by themselves.
