Addition Math Games for Number Families 9-18

I spent some time making some cards and games to work with
LD on his addition facts the 9s through 18s families (so 4+5=9
or 11+7=18, etc.). Each game set works with three families
(so pictured below are the games for the 9s, 10s and 11s families).

Addition Bingo (below):
In the board below, the cards for 9s, 10s, 11s should be
upside down in a pile. Each player takes a turn picking up
a card and placing it on their own board. The first player
to make a row (or to fill their board) wins.

Addition Spinner Game (below):
I glued the spinner board onto cardboard before placing the
brad and arrow on it.

To play the game: The cards are actually spread out
upside-down. Then the players take turns spinning the
spinner and then choosing a card to see if they get to keep
it. The first player to five wins.

Addition War with a Spinner (below):
Divide the addition cards into two even piles. Each player
turns over a card and determines the answer to their card.
Then, they spin the spinner and see who won that round.
They place the cards they have won in a separate pile.
If there is a tie, new cards are turned over, the spinner is
spun again and the winner takes all the cards in the pot.

After all the cards have been played, the winner is the
person with the most cards.

I got the spinner template below at
and just wrote in the words.

I uploaded these files to Click here to see the various
pages you can download. Sorry I wasn't able to put them into one
convenient download. I barely have time to post let alone time to
learn more about making the blog look tidy and lovely! Still, I hope
someone finds them of use.
