Math It Up! { Freebie Friday }

Finally Friday! I love Friday's and I love FREEBIES! So it only makes sense that I bring one to you every Friday. This week I want to tell you about a math freebie. My student's love this game so much I now use it as an incentive for good behavior at the end of the week. If they earn their behavior points and get their work done, we save the last half of class for this game on Friday's. It's for any grade, any age and any level or learning. It's called "Math It Up" and it's from "Teacher on the Loose!" over on TpT.

Here's a picture of it hanging on my classroom wall:

Students use the numbers on the poster and "Today's Sign" to create an equation (on a worksheet included in the download) then they solve it and make another one. Who couldn't use more practice??There are printable numbers 1-99  and all 4 signs (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) so you can adjust the sign and numbers for your grade level. I mix it up weekly and also use it as an activity for my fast finishers. This is truly a game you can use for the entire school year. Can't ask for much more than that out of something free!

Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. I think your kiddos will really like it. My students get upset when we run out of time and they don't get to finish an entire sheet. Have fun!
