Math! Playing Is Learning!

My students need fun math games to play during math class and inside recess!

My Students

Children learn best by playing! I would love for my students to have the opportunity to enjoy learning math by playing games!

My students are a wonderful group of fourth graders that attend a small school within a small city school district.

The school is comprised of a wide range of economic backgrounds. My class of fourth graders also represent a wide range of academic levels.

My Project

Teachers get a yearly budget for supplies such as tape, staples, stickers, name tags, certificates, etc. Very little is left for extras like pre-made math games. It would mean so much to my present and future students to have a supply of exciting math games to play during math and inside recess.

This is a wonderful way to show children that learning math goes beyond pencil and paper or playing games by themselves on a computer.

This is a chance to play math games in a cooperative group with their classmates. It is also a chance to show children that math is fun!
