Product Swap

I joined the product swap that was going on over at Mrs. Stanfords Class.
All I had to do was fill out a form and she matched me up with a partner.  Then we swapped an item from our TpT stores and tried the item out.  I was matched up with Penny over at Teach the Math.  She sent me her 'Four in a Row' math games.  (Click on the picture to purchase on TpT)
This is a packet of 10 board games.  Each game uses either 1 or 2 dice and some kind of marker (I used spacers).  The directions are listed at the top of each board.  The 10 boards are:
Add 1 to the number rolled
Subtract 1 from the number rolled
Use 2 dice and add the numbers
Use 2 dice and subtract the numbers
Double the number rolled
Add 2 to the number rolled
Add 5 to the number rolled
Add 10 to the number rolled
Roll and cover the number
Roll a number and cover the board
The boards have the directions at the top.  The directions are clear and my first grade son could read them with ease.  I asked my son if he wanted to play a game with me and I let him pick a board.
We first played using the same board.  I wanted to make sure he understood, but he had it and wanted me to play my own board.  Of course while Chad and I were playing my 2 year old daughter had to play also!
So Maggie and Aunt Hillary began playing their own board!  We had to play this game 5 different times:)  My son LOVED it! These games help with mental math facts...and the kids don't even realize it.  
Chad wanted to play the cover all for the last game.  I am always looking for educational games for my kids to play and this one is a winner!  I'm glad I have a copy of this, so we can have a game night again soon.
Aunt Hillary and Maggie were playing their own game.  She would show Maggie a number and cover it.  Then she would tell Maggie to find the other number just like it.  These were even useable with a 2 year old!  The possibilities are endless!!
