Monkey Around with CCSS 1st Grade Math Facts

By now everyone is back to school or getting their classrooms ready for the new school year. Many of you will be implementing CCSS. Over the past few weeks I have put together a First Grade Common Core Math Packet for Addition and Subtraction facts from 1-20 (1.OA.1, 1.OA.3, 1.OA.6) as well as Word and Symbol Common Core 1st Grade Vocabulary Cards. All children love monkeys and games so I made 9 different Roll the Die and Answer games for all the addition facts for your students to practice and become fluent by the the end of 1st grade. The games can be part of your Math Centers. The first 2 games are review games of the addition and subtraction facts from 1-10. Here is a sample of the cards which are placed face down on a game board.

There are also monkey and banana cards that are mixed in to the deck just to make game more interesting. If they pick a monkey they get an extra turn and if they get a banana, they lose their turn.
Of course, once they have learned their facts they get to earn a Top Banana Award from you.
There are 9 games : 2 Review Games plus 7 games for the 11-20 facts. Answer sheets are also included.
Here is a sample of the vocabulary word/symbol cards that you can use if you are making a Common Core Math Word Wall.
They can also be used for matching as part of your Math Center Activities.
Here is a preview of the whole packet which you can find at my TpT store by clicking on the image below. Special Back to School Price!!!
I wish each and everyone of you a wonderful school year. Thank you for all you do to make a difference for your students.
