Here are some games and activities we use in Room 8 to improve our maths.
|One of our favourite games is Greedy. If you have a die (dice) at home you could do this with a friend or family member. See who is the most cautious and who is the greediest!!|
Puzzles are a fantastic way to improve our maths. This puzzle is not easily solved but a lot of fun to play with.
|Snakes and ladders - an oldie but a goodie! Counting forwards (and backwards!)|
|Fraction and 3D puzzles. Geometric and spacial challenges.|
|Challenge friends to a basic facts race.|
|Tangrams. You could make your own puzzle and create your own silhouettes.|
|Organising and sorting. Being the quickest to find the magician who has nothing in common with the one on the top of the stack.|
|So many card games improve our maths. Fish for number recognition, 'speed' for forward and backward number sequences, memory, solitaire (finding pairs that equal 10) for 'tidy tens'.|
|Murtle the turtle - adding five.|
