Tips & Tricks: Making Math Fun

 I love math! It was always my favorite subject in school. Sadly, our daughter does not share my love of math. She will shutdown completely and not even try, even though she is amazing at it. So I have to make math fun so she’ll want to do it. We got this monkey scale a long time ago. I used it at first to show her visually what is bigger/smaller, heavier/lighter, many/few. It worked great and was super fun for her.

Since she enjoyed this balance so much I’m incorporating it into our Math-U-See curriculum. She has the physical blocks and the balance to solidify her math knowledge. But the most important part is that she is finding math can be fun. If you teach at a school or at home you know it’s important for the student to enjoy school.


For learning to count by a certain number I’ve got another idea. I draw on the driveway a bunch of squares and then write the numbers; example 10, 20, 30, etc. Then your child gets to jump on each number. Not only will they have fun while learning to count but they are also getting exercise. Since we’re in Texas sometimes it best to do this activity inside because the heat is just to much.

Review: Geoboards

A fun way to help kids get great hand-eye coordination isn’t with  Geoboards . I love that with these there are 4 boards included so you can use it with multiple students. The rubber bands are different colors and 2 different sizes. The pictures are fun, colorful and you get a bunch of them. My daughter really likes these. For some reason she thinks it’s so funny when the bands pop her. At first I just let her place the bands anywhere to get the idea of how to put them on. Then we started places them just on the white lines in the picture. She always wants to do more than one so I let her do as many pictures as she wants. I do wish there was a blanket picture so she could design her own things.
