Virtual Math Games to Engage Student Learning

We made it! 2020. . . the longest year ever! LOL! I'm trying to finish all my grading this weekend so I do not do any school work during winter break.  #goals  

One of my struggles during distance learning has been how to keep students engaged during math. When we used to be in person, students would work in partners or small groups.  Breakout rooms have been the perfect solution! Students meet in partners or triads. I digitized a few of the games that I used to print out and laminate. They are no-prep and ready to use!

My students even asked me to post the games in Schoology (our Learning Management System) so they could play over Winter Break! (So you know these are tried & true teaching tools!) Click on the links below to download three of my students' favorite games:

I hope your kids love them as much as mine do! Happy holidays & enjoy your much-deserved break!

  1. And that's how you know it's really good: kids ask to play these games even over break! Thanks so much for sharing your talents with us in this really helpful post! I know a few fourth graders who will love trying out these games!

    1. I know! I was tickled when they asked for the game links! I hope they do interact with their parents during break!

  2. What a wonderful way for your kiddos to learn math. They play games and have no idea they're actually learning something. I just love seeing your creative ideas, they're just what the teacher ordered.

  3. These are great games. I have such a hard time getting my kiddos to speak, especially to one another. I think these games will be a good icebreaker. Thanks, Kathie!

    1. The breakout rooms made the difference for my students to actually talk to each other (and laugh and work!) Thanks, Marcy!
