Roll and color math games are an engaging way to help students practice a wide variety of math skills in a very fun, hands-on way. We’ve designed a series of math game sets for many of the major holidays and seasons, and we are adding more sets regularly.

Tips for Using the Roll and Color Math Games
Decide whether you’ll be using your games over and over again or for one-time use.
- For single use play simply assemble the desired game cube and print the appropriate roll and color recording sheet. Kids roll and color with a marker or crayon as they tackle the math task for that game.
- For multi-use one option is to cover the game mat by laminating or using sheet protectors and doing the writing with dry erase markers.
- Or for another multi-use options use math manipulatives that relate to the theme of the game. Mini erasors, pom poms, table scatter, and other small items work well for this approach, and kids like the novelty of using the materials.
These games can easily fit into your routine. You might use them for:
- center activities in the classroom
- independent work for homeschool
- a free choice option for early finishers
- a small groupd guided math activity
- workbox activity options for home preschool
- an after school program or home math practice option
