Fat Brain Toy Co. has really creat an amazing little game that touches on a lot of math concepts that are normally harder for students to grasp. Bugzzle goes beyond the fun of regular puzzles. It is a great way to get kids excited about math. The pieces are a nice size but don’t have much weight to them. The colors are bright and the challenge cards have the solutions on the back.
My daughter has really been enjoying this game. She loves games in which she has to solve a problem. I have noticed however that this game isn’t difficult for her. She can easily complete the challenges. So in an attempt to get her brain moving when she plays I ask her about each ring within the circle. “How much of the outer circle is orange?”, “How much of the center circle is green?”, when she answers I give her the fraction equivalent so she starts saying them in fraction as well.
That's great that you're able to expand the suggested activities to keep the challenge going. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
