I tutor and author a blog called The Tutor House. I write about engaging ways to tutor children and running a tutoring business. When ever I get a new student who needs tutoring in math, they've often don't have the basics down. Flash cards can be great, but sometimes they can be overkill drill practice.
1. Basic Math Operations
2. Problem Solving Skills
3. Social Skills (waiting turns, good sportsmanship)
I've compiled some directions for a few of my favorites plus a set of playing card math mats for you.
Download the card games here. Download the playing card mats here. I hope that you'll have fun playing right along with your children. When you have a good attitude about playing games and learning, it rubs off on your children too. Happy Game Time!
