Introducing my expert gameschooling panel:
As a gameschool family, we play games daily. We consider games to be part of the curriculum and value the power of play. Today, I would like to introduce you to my expert gameschooling panel.
This expert gameschooling panel will be sharing their top picks for gameschooling math.
The 10-year-old’s favorite math game
This fella’s favorite math game is Prime Climb. This is a game that I recommend often because it can grow with your family. We have been playing it for years.
He said, “Prime Climb is probably the best math game. You have to really think about your strategy and use all of the operations. The board graphics are really cool, too.”
The 9-year-old’s favorite math game
She said, “I like Check the Fridge because I like asking the other players for cards. The Stinky Cheese card is funny. If you like bluffing and card games, you might like this game!”
The 7-year-old’s favorite math game
This guy’s favorite math game is Countdown. This game has a special place in my gameschool heart because our neighbors gave it to us when I first started suddenly, unexpectedly homeschooling. It’s been played so many times!
He said, “I like Countdown because it has math and it’s pretty fun. I like rolling dice. If you love math, you would love this game.”
Gameschooling Math: The best math games for homeschooling
Gameschooling math can be a homeschool game-changer! (See what I did there? Ha!)
Gameplay offers children a chance to practice and build skills in a no-pressure, non-judgmental way. If the game doesn’t go the way you wanted it to, you can start over and try again.
Does your kiddo cry over his math workbook? Guess what? There’s a game for that, and I can guarantee you’ll have fewer power struggles when you swap out the workbook for the game board.
Here are a few of our family’s favorite math games for homeschooling:
