There is no question that playing games makes math more fun for everyone! Whether planning for games that kiddos can play at home during the school year or putting together learning bags for students to take home over breaks, dice and playing cards are inexpensive materials with tons of uses. In this post, you can download a free booklet of math games to play using dice.

Wow! Great games for my students to enjoy. I can’t wait to get these going with my math group. Thanks so much for sharing!
These look wonderful- thank you so much for posting.
I have loved using your site to prepare for a mission trip to Guatemala to train some teachers there! When I google math games with Spanish instructions, this pops up. Do you happen to have the dice or card game directions in Spanish? That would be so helpful for them to have some resources to use after we leave. My e-mail is [email protected] if you have them in Spanish. Thanks so much!!!
I just emailed you, Rebecca. I wish I could help with this, but I do not have a Spanish translation for either of these. 🙁
I can’t tell you how AMAZING I think your blog is….I couldn’t teach without it!!!! These are going to be wonderful to share with parents at our Math & Literacy night….THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!! (Of course credit will be given to you:0)
I love your enthusiasm, Rebecca! Thank you so much for passing on this resource to your parents. 🙂
You have the best ideas! Thank you for sharing them with those of us who are not as math savvy as you are! You help us be better teachers for our students!
Hi, I was trying to access the link for the dice games, but I’m getting a server error. I realize this is a post from awhile ago, so it might not be available anymore. If it is, I’d love to get a copy of it.
Nevermind… I got it. 🙂
I think it was down for a little while today. Did you try again?
I think that these games to be great for back to school week. Thank you sharing.
THANK YOU! These games will be fun for my kiddos. I appreciate this booklet, and also the games with a deck of cards. My family used to play games a lot, and I really think that’s how I learned my basic facts.
Pig is great fun! My fourth grade class enjoys playing with each other when we have some extra time.
I shared this in multiple teacher groups on Facebook and provided the link to your page. I did both booklets and added dice and a deck of cards as Christmas presents for all of my math intervention kids. Thanks so much for sharing.
Thanks for sharing! I was wondering where all the traffic was coming from. Mystery solved. 😀
When I print back to back the second page is backwards. What am I doing wrong?
Be sure you are printing 2-sided, flipping on the SHORT side.
These look like fun and a great way to practice concepts!
