If you would like to play games without using a computer and with no need for complicated resources we’ve included some below. Most of these simple games can be played with a 100 square, digit cards and a dice.

Count em\'

Resources: A box of objects to count

Players take it in turns to grab a handful of objects from the box, count them and record the number. The aim of the game is to get each number from 10-20.

More or Less

Resources: 1-100 square with random numbers shaded in 2 colours, dice and counters

Players take it in turns to throw the dice and move their counter. Land on blue- move on 1, land on red- move back 1. This can be adapted as appropriate to move on/back 10 and by starting on 100 and counting back.

Flashcards

Resources: flashcards 1-10, 1-100, decimals

Show the children a number, they respond with the compliment to 10/20/1.

Biggest wins

Resources: dice

Players throw the dice and choose whether to use the digit as a tens or ones in a two digit number. They throw the dice again to generate the other digit. Players cannot change the digit once written. When both players have made a two digit number, the biggest number wins and scores a point. First to 10 points wins. This can be adapted to incorporate bigger numbers.

Tens and ones

Resources: Dice, 1-100 grid and counters

Players take it in turns to throw 2 dice and make a 2 digit number. Cover it on the grid and the first to get three in a row wins.
