Dr. Rick explains 10 real world, mini math games in this article that you can play with your kids to help them practice their math, including such things as:
- playing with junk mail (which is pretty creative,kids love mail),
- keeping score (of anything),
- using money,
- and number of the day (for Sesame Street fans especially)
… to name half of the ideas. There are some fun ideas here, and a few that need a twist or two. I think twisted ideas are some of the best actually, but that’s how my brain works.
Once you do some of Dr. Rick’s ideas while you are out running errands in the car, you can give your kids some online time at ClassBrainGames to practice their math with some fun math games; some of which are wickedly addicting. Even older kids will benefit from these quick games. The quicker they are with basic math like addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, the quicker they can get through their algebra and calculus questions, as well. WooHoo! You will find all of our math games under Brain Games>Math Games www.classbraingames.com/category/brain-games/math-games/.
