Math Fun

If you are looking for ways to practice and encourage your child's math skills, try putting away the workbook for a change and play games!

Here is a list of simple Dice and Card games for the whole family!

Math literacy is so much more than memorizing numbers and math facts. You child needs lots of time to play, think, use manipulatives, and let those concepts gel in their minds. Encourage them to tell you what they are doing when completing math activities.

Any time you are able to use 'real life' activities to teach math skills, do so. For younger children, use money, calendars, cutlery, shopping, folding socks, and other daily activities to show how numbers work.
