A fun, hands-on game students can play to practice the 'Counting On 1' addition strategy.

Use this board game as a math center activity to practice the ‘Counting On 1’ addition strategy 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.
