Adding math board games to my centers is one of my favorite ways to engage students while reviewing important math skills. Not only are games exciting for students, but they make planning for math centers easy and low-prep for teachers. Theyโre also great for homeschooling parents looking for math activities that are a bit more hands-on for their learners.

**Hereโs a list of some of my favorite games that teach math skills such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, fractions, and more!ย **
