These fun and easy to use math games are designed for children ages 3 to 6-years-old. Some games are quick and use everyday materials; others use a game board for more extended play. All of our games can be played multiple times and their difficulty can be increased or decreased to target a “just right” level of challenge for children as they gain proficiency.
The games foster children’s persistence, problem solving, puzzling, and strategy selection skills. Together, they focus on the Big Ideas in Early Math! including counting, numerical operations, algebraic thinking, geometry, and spatial skills. The games are also designed to promote children’s mastery motivation, executive function, and social-emotional skills.
One effective family math strategy is to play a math game in the classroom and then send it home for children to play it again with their families. Children are proud to share – and teach – something they learned in school to others! This also gives families a chance to learn more about the learning that is happening in the classroom.
