Every week the 2nd graders start out the week with “Math Games Monday”. Not only does this give us a break from the regular routine of lessons, but it’s just plain fun! It’s important to make sure we are using our brains and hands to do more than just writing or doing memory activities. When we play different Math games, we can use our whole bodies to move around and manipulate objects. We usually play games that reinforce what we are already learning such as: addition or subtraction facts, quick recognition of number groups, spatial reasoning, measuring, and story problems. Some of our favorite games are Blink, War, Chinese checkers, Treasure Hunting objects of different lengths, and Connect Four. Come and play with us. We would love to include you in the fun!
