Family Games

For each grade level, you’ll find math games for home play, provided as downloadable and printable PDFs (you might like to get the free Acrobat Reader for opening PDFs).

We know that resources vary by home, so whenever possible, we’ve provided printable, digital, and “make your own” options in each game.

Games are based on current grade level standards. However, if a game seems too difficult or too easy for your child, take a look at the Change It Up suggestions listed in each game. Or, try a game below or above your child’s grade level. Most importantly, have fun learning and playing together!
