Use this fun game to consolidate your students’ knowledge of any or all of the four basic operations.
Students roll two dice. They add, subtract, multiply, and divide the two numbers shown on the dice (if they can).
If any of the answers appear in the grid, they cover them with a counter. The first person to get to four answers in a row (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally) wins!
This is a great activity to have in a math center rotation to practice fact fluency.
This activity can be modified in the following ways:
- For the primary grades, use two 10-sided dice and having them only add or subtract. Then, choose the grids that only have numbers up to 20.
- For higher level learners, provide multiple 10-sided dice for the students to use. They can use a combination of operations, but must use all of the rolled numbers.

Relate counting to addition and subtraction (e.g., by counting on 2 to add 2).
Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 - 4 = 13 - 3 - 1 = 10 - ...
Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies. By end of Grade 2, know from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers.
Add up to four two-digit numbers using strategies based on place value and properties of operations.
Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8 × 5 = 40, one knows 40 ÷ 5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all pr...
Fluently add and subtract within 1000 using strategies and algorithms based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.
Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangul...
Find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explai...
