This post has a free number names games with a St. Pat’s theme printable. Here is a PDF game about names for numbers:  March Match for Number Names.  It is a free 26 page PDF.  In first grade, we practice knowing different names for numbers such as both 3+3 and 2+4 have the “name” six.  This is such good math practice for beginning mathematicians.  Number names is a frequent “math box” in the Everyday Math program for first grade (EDM). It teaches flexible thinking about numbers as well as math fact fluency.  The PDF is found in our free eMember area. Numbers represented by coins, tallies, dominoes, fingers, and math sentences help reveal a world of math everywhere for children.


Just like people have several names such as Molly, girl, friend, sister, cousin, niece, and so on, numbers have many names, too! For instance 6 has names like 2 + 4, 10 – 4, and 2 + 2 + 2, and even 200 – 194!
