Games to Play

Playing games, solving puzzles, cooking and carpentry are great ways to build a variety of mathematical skills, both numerical and spatial visual. The file here, both in English and Spanish, reflect games that simple adaptations to games we all grew up with. Go Fish becomes Ten Go Fish to work on developing pairs of ten. The original card game of War becomes a game called By How Much where you ask your child ‘by how much did you beat me by?” The same game becomes the equivalent of Double War (Different schools call is Double Compare  or Double Top It to become more descriptive.) Each person draws two cards and is to the person with the highest total wins. Look through the attached files and play away. But then again, don’t forget to play Chess, Checkers, Cribbage, Backgammon, Monopoly… And have fun while you are at it.
