Can Maths Board Games Make Maths More Fun? A Review
Kids love playing computer games and watching TV, so the popularity of online maths programs such as Maths-Whizz and Ten Marks which use multimedia to teach maths to kids is no surprise. There’s why it’s so strange that kids also love traditional board games. It’s like playing board games a strange novelty!
In fact, anything that gives them time with mum, dad, or a sibling. In my 31 Days to Faster Times Tables product, I have a great bonus called 31 Ways to Practice the Times Tables, but Teresa Evans has compiled the ultimate collection of maths and logic games. If you’ve ever spent hours in front of google trying to look for maths worksheets and games, then you need to take a look at the Making Math More Fun collection.
The Making Math More Fun Collection
The Making Math More Fun Collection is a great option for parents who want their kids to practice their basic skills. Here are the main features:
- Suitable for kids aged 4-10 years old
- Over 450 pages of maths games
- Includes printable board games, 2 player games sheets, card games and mental maths games
Printable Maths Board Games
The Printable Board Games pack is my favorite! Not only does it have bright colorful, professionally designed printable game sheets, but Teresa has included a full set of instructions for each game as well as an index of games that target each maths skill, making it easy peasy to select, for example, games that practice decimals.
What I like about this pack is:
- It saves time – no more seating on Google for maths games
- It’s good value – a lot cheaper than buying board games
- It’s convenient – just print off and laminate or use clear plastic file pockets to easily reuse the sheets
- There’s a variety of games practicing a variety of skills at different levels
