Math Facts Games:

Math Beanbag Toss


Today's Snack: Heat up refried beans or bean dip in the microwave. Sprinkle some shredded cheddar cheese on top. Reheat for a few seconds. Use as a dip with tortilla chips, or spread onto a fried or warmed tortilla, roll and eat.





Package of dried lima beans | felt or other fabric scraps

Ruler | pencil | scissors | threaded needle


This fun beanbag game will help you practice your math facts. The faster you toss the beanbag, the faster you'll have to think. And that's good!


You will need one beanbag for every two students.


With a ruler, measure and mark with a pencil a 5" square on one piece of felt. Cut it apart. Use it as a pattern on the other piece of felt. Cut a second 5" square.


With the threaded needle, using a running stitch, sew together three sides of the square so that you have created an open-ended bag. Knot off the thread.


Turn the bag inside out. Fill it with dried beans. Sew closed the fourth side.


Now you have a bean bag. With a partner, play Math Beanbag Toss:


1.      Holding the beanbag, you toss it to your partner, saying a number.


2.      Your partner throws it back, saying "plus," "minus," "times" or "divided by."


3.      You throw the bag back, saying another number.


4.      Your partner throws it back, saying "equals."


5.      You throw it back, saying the answer.


6.      Your partner starts the next round by throwing it to you and saying a number, and on you go with the game.
