Description

Prepare your child for math success-by playing games!

You'll love these math games because they give your child a sturdy foundation for understanding mathematics.

Young children play with counting and number recognition. Older students explore place value, build number sense, and begin learning the basics of addition.

Counting & Number Bonds features 21 kid-tested games, offering a variety of challenges for preschool and early-elementary learners. Chapters include:

Early Counting: Practice subitizing-recognizing small numbers of items at a glance-and learn the number symbols. Childhood Classics: Traditional folk games invite the whole family to enjoy playing with math. Number Bonds: Build a mental picture of the relationships between numbers as you begin to explore addition. Bigger Numbers: Develop familiarity with two-digit numbers and promote strategic thinking skills.

Math games prevent math anxiety. Games pump up your child's mental muscle, reduce the fear of failure, and generate a positive attitude toward mathematics.

Parents can use these games to enjoy quality time with your children. Classroom teachers like them 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 build your students' math skills.

So what are you waiting for? Clear off a table, grab a deck of cards, and let's play some math!
