Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 3 pages | Grades: 1 - 2

A fun, hands-on game students can play to practice the subtraction strategy 'Counting Back by 1'.

Use this board game as a math center activity to practice the subtraction strategy ‘counting back 1’ with your students.

A fun game played in pairs where the aim is to be the first player to reach the ‘Finish’ line.

How to Play:

  • Students each select a counter and place it on the ‘Start’ line.
  • They take turns rolling the die or spinning the spinner provided and then following the direction.
  • If they move forward, they must answer the number sentence they land on.
  • Correct answers can keep the counter in the same place. Incorrect answers move their counter back to the previous place on the game board.

An instruction page with a die and an instruction page with a spinner are both provided with this resource.

Use the drop-down menu to choose between the full color, low color, or black and white version.
