If you’re interested in helping children learn math, I have special offer just for you:
- Save 20% off the individual ebooks or 35% off the paperback prices when you buy a combined 2-books-in-1 edition featuring the first two books in the Math You Can Play series together.
The 42 kid-tested games are simple to learn, quick to play, and require minimal preparation. Most use common household items such as cards or dice.
“Although the cover says games for young learners, the beauty of this book is that most of the games can easily be scaled up for older kids, teens, and even adults. My youngest is four and my oldest is 14, and I will be pulling games for all of them out of this book!
“I appreciate that most of the games are low floor, high ceiling – easy for a child to access, but can be played at a higher level through strategy or slight alterations to the rules. These are not drills disguised as games, but activities that require problem solving and strategy as well as calculation.”
Math Your Kids Will Beg to Play
Math games pump up mental muscle, reduce the fear of failure, and generate a positive attitude toward mathematics. Games strengthen a child’s innate understanding of numbers and build problem-solving skills. Mastering a math game can be hard work, but kids do it willingly because it is fun.
Young children can play with counting and number recognition, explore place value, build number sense, and begin learning the basics of addition. Older students can develop mental flexibility by playing with numbers, from basic math facts to the hundreds and beyond.
- If you are a parent, these games let you enjoy quality time with your children.
- If you are a classroom teacher, use the games as warm-ups and learning center activities or for a relaxing review day at the end of a term.
- If you are a tutor or homeschooler, make games a regular feature in your lesson plans to develop mental math strategies.
So what are you waiting for? Let’s play some math!
