Worksheets are your tools. A worksheet does not make a good teacher any more than a hammer makes a good builder. I was a bit sceptical when I looked at the Making Math Fun series. The last thing I need as a relief teacher is a time-waster. But these Cool Math Games had me at "Hello".
They are great!
So much so that I bought the series for myself.
Let's face it, math can be fun but not all kids think it is.
The goal of mathematics is active learning.
But you have to cater for different learning styles with a variety of math activities.
Kids are used to being entertained.
But "entertained" doesn't always equal active learning.
Nor do all math activities.
That's why the Making Math Fun series is such a fabulous series for teachers.
Every one of the hundreds of math games and math activities has a clear math skills.
Active learning is the primary focus with each one of the math activities catering for different learning styles.
Clearly what worked in the past, doesn't necessarily work today.
Many kids don't want to learn math skills or practice math, but kids appreciate active learning and cool math games.
No wonder you feel frustrated!
You know that math skills are vital to every child’s future.
But many kids struggle with math and don't enjoy it at all.
It doesn't have to be like this!
Imagine having, at your disposal, hundreds of cool math games that promote active learning, cater for different learning styles and keeps kids engaged with math games so that they don't even want to stop.
Even when you ask them to.
Wouldn't that be great?
Cool math games motivate kids so they learn the basics of math.
|The first is a game of 27. There are 6 games to a sheet. Kids play in a pairs. They colour a hexagon in turn. The first to 27 wins. Tell me that's not a brilliant idea. It would be fabulous for those early finishers and I reckon even bigger kids would go for this one. And the math that they are practising while playing. Gold!|
Imagine the satisfaction from seeing your kid's math skills soar and their grades going up.
Now you can get kids engaged in math and wanting to do more day after day....

I purchased the whole set and LOVE them.

|The other one that impressed me was this one. This will test the strategists in the class. Colour in either 1,2,3 or 4 dots. Dots have to be connected in a vertical or horizontal row. Person who colours the last dot wins. There are 15 to a sheet.|
I'm going to use these as games for the grandkids when they come over.

I would imagine your budget is limited for resources (and whose isn't). If you buy one resource this year, I reckon this ought to be the one.
