About I Have Who Has Games
This type of game is a great addition to your classroom!
My students always loved them.
I loved that they were a great time filler that also had many benefits. We could play a round in under five minutes so it was perfect when you had too little time to do a full activity but I was searching for something meaningful.
Along with the math skill being practiced, there were also other benefits.
The key to students being able to play the game well was listening. Children had to listen but they also received practice reading and speaking in a classroom.
Of course, reading in front of a class can be challenging for some students. I would always try to do a quick check with those students who might want to read their cards to me before they read in front of the class. This would help build confidence along with give them a chance to check on any unknown words.
These I Have Who Has Mental Math Practice Games
This download contains five different versions of the game. Each game is provided on a different background color. This will make for easy sorting when the cards get mixed up!
The second half of the file contains the cards with a white background in case you are trying to save color ink. These have a thin colored border to assist with sorting.
There is also a blank version. At a math center, you can have students create their own game using the blank template!
The sets provide the following practice:
- 10 more or 10 less
- mixed addition & subtraction
- mixed skills – addition, subtraction, money, geometry, halves and doubles
How to Play
After you print your cards on card stock and laminate the pages, cut apart the cards. You are now ready to play!
Begin by providing each student with a card – if you have extras, you might give some students two cards.
Ask for the student who has the word “START” to raise their hand. This child will read the card out loud.
The student who has the card with the answer to the problem will then read their card.
The game continues until the student with the card “FINISH” reads theirs.
