    aaarrrggghhh my son loves pirates so getting him to sit & attend for an entire game was easy with this one. I also modified it so instead of practicing addition, he practiced number word recognition with flash cards I made from halved index cards (draw # of cards = die roll).

    It is a set of free board games that provide math-focused fun. There are very little materials needed for this, which makes it wonderful. Not much for the little ones to have to pick up and make sure they have. Each game consists on only one page and there is just enough color in them to make them visually appealing to students. They help the students master their basic addition math skills.
