Today I’d like to talk about how you can learn and enjoy math at the same time. Yes, as the title indicates, it’s through play. Playing math games to learn and reinforce math concepts is highly motivating. Simply put, it is FUN!!
With the holiday season fast approaching, I offer this idea to you and your parents – BUY A MATH GAME FOR YOUR ʻOHANA FOR CHRISTMAS! Why not? Games can be enjoyed by young and old. There are a wide variety of math games that are available and I’m mentioning this early so that you will be alert to the Christmas sales that will be coming up later this month.
Parents- Go ahead and play with your keiki – you’ll have a new appreciation for the different intelligences that your keiki will demonstrate while playing (visual/spatial, mathematical, etc.).
Keiki – Identify the math games that you love and explain how that math game helps you remember those specific math concepts. Remember, at least three sentences.
Miss all of you!!
