Mind Games and More Free Math Games and Printables

Yara from Sea of Knowledge is hosting a great little linky party for you, full of lots of great math games. Hope on over to her blog by clicking HERE

Speaking of math games, here is a great one that I like to try to play with my kids. 
We call it, "Tic, Tac, Toe...Across the Mind". No materials are needed, so you can play it ANYWHERE:)

Two people play at a time. Each chooses whether they will be the X's or O's. Players take turns calling out their position choice verbally. Upon each choice, both players must REMEMBER the positions that each person previously laid claim to. The conversation could go something like this:

Player A: I put an X in the upper, right-hand corner.
Player B: I put an O in the lower, left-hand corner.
Player A: I put an X in the lower, right-hand corner.
Player B: I put an O in the middle of the right-hand row. And so on. Until one player wins or both tie for a "Cat's Game." We get ourselves crazy with trying to remember what spots were already taken and we usually end up laughing lots while playing this game.

Anyone know why it's called a "Cat's Game" when they tie?

For some more fun, free math, here you go!


If you click on those pictures, you can have the activities for free. Furthermore, if you click on the pictures and go over to my store, you can sort the items in my store according to price and all the free items will come to the top.
