Math-a-pillar Game – FREE Printable

A Fun Little Math Game!! 

Are you struggling through some math assignments? This math-a-pillar (math caterpillar) will help make your math more fun by turning it into a game! I made this for my own boys, since we’ve been doing homeschooling while schools are closed. We add our math assignments into this little guy to make it easier to get through them.


First, choose a page! Use the grade 1 or grade 2 version, or add your own equations to the blank one. 

Next, build a monster game piece or grab a game piece from a board game in your house. That will be your character. Now you’re ready to play!


Climb onto the caterpillar’s head (with your character!) to get started. Do the first equation. When it’s done, move your character (game piece) to that section of the math-a-pillar’s back. Now do the next equation! Each time you finish one, move your piece that section until you get all the way to the star!


Did you notice the sections with dance instructions on them? When you pass those dotted dance demands GET UP AND MOVE! Celebrate your math-awesomeness!
