# What Are Some First Grade Math Games?

Some first-grade math games include "Bumble Numbers," "Apple Catch" and "Fish Bowl Addition." All of these games are available to play online via educational websites.

In "Bumble Numbers," first graders practice their simple addition skills. A player drags his bumblebee to the wind cloud to expose a number on a dandelion seed. The player catches the seed with the number and drops it in the flower with the correct addition problem to get the number. Each round offers the player three chances to solve different addition problems. This game can be found on FunBrain.com.

"Apple Catch," also found on FunBrain.com, helps first graders practice counting to 10. A player uses his mouse to fly a bird under an apple tree. The player must catch the apples as they fall from the tree with the bird. Once the apple is in the bird's mouth, the player drops it in the basket. As each apple lands in the basket, the game verbally announces the number of apples in the basket.

To practice both counting and addition skills, first graders can play "Fish Bowl Addition" on Education.com. The game provides all of the instructions verbally. A player places the correct number of goldfish in two fish bowls and then counts up the total number of fish to solve an addition problem. Once a player selects the correct answer, the game verbally repeats the addition problem and answer to reinforce the information.
