There are 25 when you see that some items include more than one. To list all the games without having you click on the links would be stealing. I choose to direct people to others’ blogs instead of pretending their content is my own.

Thank you so much, I found this last night and today I tried the uno math facts. My daughter (in Kindergarten) loved it. She wanted to play again, and again. I was very pleased. I am learning so much from you.

I have one more idea that I did not see. This summer, I had my daughter write with chalk on the sidewalk about 3-4 yards away. Then I showed her a math fact. She had to run over and jump on the answer while shouting out the answer. The run gave her the chance to think about the answer and it gave her some heart pumping, fresh oxygen to the brain.

It sounds like you’re a born teacher, Valerie! The run, jump, and shout math game is fabulous!

It’s funny how simply adding an element of surprise makes something a “game.” The uno addition is the same problem solving you would do with a worksheet of problems, but by revealing them one at a time and not knowing what will come up, it’s so much more engaging. It can even be fun!

Anna Geiger

Yes – isn’t it great how it can take very little effort to turn drill into a game?
