never to late to make math fun again I received this book in exchange for an honest review All reviews are mine and were in no way influenced by outside sources I am a professional blogger at Little Lady Plays To be honest, math was never my favorite subject in school However, I was fairly good at it through grade four Then in grade five, we got hit with the new math The poor teachers, who were used to instructing the old way, seemed at a loss, and I was fairly stumped until seventh grade when we had a math teacher who really knew his stuff As a result, though I still did not care for math that much, I was able to negotiate it through high school and college Because learning math is so importan To be honest, math was never my favorite subject in school However, I was fairly good at it

important, homeschooling parents are always looking for the right curriculum Saxon Math, Singapore Math, Math U See, etc Maybe the curriculum would not matter so much if the students could just see that math can be fun.In this Volume 1 of her Math You Can Play series, author Denise Gaskins, a veteran homeschooling mother of five who has taught or tutored mathematics at every level from preschool to undergraduate physics, provides kid tested games which offer a variety of challenges for preschool and early elementary learners Young children can play with counting and number recognition, while older students explore place value, build number sense, and begin learning the basics of addition, using common, everyday objects such as playing cards, dominoes, and dice Denise says, I encourage parents to look beyond the textbook a useful tool, but such a limited one We want to explore the adventure of learning real mathematics, math as mental play, the essence of creative problem solving This is what we need to teach our children Mathematics is not just rules and rote memory Math is a game, playing with ideas There are four main sections in the book A Strategy for Learning contains introductory material Counting and Number Bond Games has four chapters Early Counting Practice Childhood Classics Number Bonds and Bigger Numbers, with a total of 21 math games which will help students to develop familiarity with numbers and promote strategic thinking skills Classroom teachers can use them as warm ups or for review day at the end of a term Homeschoolers can make games a regular part of their lesson plans to build the students mental math skills Playing to Learn Math offers some teaching philosophy The final section contains Resources and References And there is an index Parents whose young ones are struggling with math should find this book useful The next book in the series is Addition and Subtraction Math Games for Elementary Students, Grades K 4 I liked this as a reference for fun games to play with the kids It uses simple manipulative primarily cards, dice, and dominoes or things you can print out.
