Are you looking for a fun way to reinforce single digit addition? Are you looking for an educational game you can play as a reward in your class? Do you want to challenge your students with their learning, or support their needs in a fun way? Do you want to feed juice and cupcakes to woodland creatures? If you answered yes to any of these, check out Unicorn Party – A Primary Math Game.
Unicorn Party is a print and play card game that is designed to reinforce single digit addition skills in primary grade students.
In Unicorn Party, players work together to host a party! Each guest needs a certain amount of cupcakes and juice to stay happy. By adding the cupcake and juice cards together, the player can feed their guests. The closer the player can match the sum of food requested by the guest, the better! Once the food runs out, the party is over – hopefully all guests have been fed!
Benefits of Play
Unicorn Party is designed to engage and motivate students in using their basic addition skills. Traditional flash cards and addition tables have often filled the role of mathematics practice – but motivation for these activities are often low. Unicorn Party reinforces the same academic skills, with the added advantage of increased engagement, motivation, and a healthy injection of fun!
Unicorn party helps students learn teamwork, as they can play in pairs to try and host a party! Students can be challenged as well, if they find the game too easy, or supported with more simplified game play.
Unicorn Party teaches problem solving skills. Students can overfeed their guests if they want – but they will soon learn that running out of food will stop the party early!
Unicorn Party also leads the students through a number of different social skills – from turn taking to communication and fair play.
