Math Card Games for Homework

Happy Monday! I have something to give you and I am really excited about it. I've been whipping up some math card games and am giving them to you for free today. Only four have been made, but that is better than nothing right?

I use math card games for my math homework. I have tried EVERYTHING in the past for math homework and nothing, NOTHING, my friends, has been more successful than math card games. I have parents tell me all the time how much fun they have as a family when playing these games. I've even had older and younger siblings tell me they have fun playing math card games. All I do is copy on fun colored paper, cut and send home each Monday. I also throw these in my math rotations at times.

The only problem is (please don't tell) that I've been using 3rd grade aligned card games for my 4th graders! Gasp! I know! So, I am going to make a whole set of 4th grade aligned card games. So far I have four games for you. They are all yours. Just click the pic and enjoy! All the games are free in my TpT store.

*Update - because of the awesome response (emails just keep coming) I've created a set of NBT card games and will be making the other standards soon. Click here to visit my TpT store if you would like.

I'm linking up with my favortie summertime linky! Thanks Tara, for being so awesome!


  1. Great games ideas! Homework can be such a struggle--I know your kids will love this! I'm super inspired by the idea to take to my 2nd grade classroom. Thanks for sharing!

  2. EEEEE! What a fun and engaging way for kiddos to practice their math and do their homework without even knowing it;) Love this idea!!! Will definitely be using it with my kids!!! Thank you for sharing and linking up:)

  3. Love the idea of using games as homework. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Kids love cards...that's a fact! Love this idea and bet my 5th graders would totally buy into this! Just printed this and am ready to place on different colors. Thank you so much for sharing this idea!
    Rockin' and Lovin' Learnin'

  5. I love this idea! I gave my students a brochure of card games and pack of cards at the end of the year and they were so excited for it! Not to mention, about 90% of my students need continued practice with basic math work that can be accomplished using cards and it's fun! I think you are on to something!!
