Players get 3 or 4 hexagons touching to each other in a line or other configuration as shown on the game board (3 will take less time and may be more accessible for Grade 1 learners)

The goal is to fill up the grid to get it as full as possible while using the space as efficiently as possible. Draw arrays on the grid to see how close you can get to 100. How many squares do you have empty?

Learners play in pairs. They each show a certain number of fingers. The winner is the learner who can determine the difference between the two numbers first.

Learner play in pairs. They each show a certain number of fingers. The winner is the learner who can determine the answer of the two numbers when multiplied.

Learners take turns to say the next number in a number pattern. The learner who finishes the pattern must put up their hand. The winner is the first learner to put up both hands.

Players use beans to practice their bonds to ten. Ten beans are placed in a cup and a certain amount is spilled out, the players have to say how many they think are left in the cup.

Players use duplo blocks to build a tower. They roll a dice to determine how many studs to cover. The pair with the tallest tower that has not fallen wins.

Played one team/person against another. Each team gets 5 counters (so need to have two different colour counters). The team that gets the most counters to the end wins.

Players use duplo blocks to form various shapes in pairs, while one is blindfolded. The one blindfolded will feel the shape using finger to count remaining circles in order to duplicate the shape.

Understanding the reciprocal relationship between addition and subtraction and the role of the equal sign. Each learner is provided with the whole-part grid (see below) and two dice

Players in groups of threes use playing cards to practice addition and subtraction. The captain gives each player a card and they put it on their forehead (salute). The captain tells them the total of the two cards. The players have to guess the number on their card.
