One word of warning though ... I do tend to play fast and loose with rules. I have been known to tweak, change, add to, adjust the rules to make a game fit a situation. I highly suggest doing the same :)
A few of my constant favorites are Math Dice Jr., 4-Way Count Down, BLINK, ZooLogic, and Pig Ten. These and more can be found on my game page.
While I am unable to attend, I hope that you are able to go to QAE's Game Night this Thursday. It should be a blast of an event - including a few 4th and 5th grade game makers sharing their personal creations!
Another event happening soon is the Book Fair. It will be going on all next week with the 2nd Annual Book-o-Rama happening on Wednesday, April 5th. After my last post I was contacted by two parents asking to borrow some of the books that I showcased. I was so excited about this! I LOVE LOVE LOVE sharing the books, tools, games, etc... that I spend way too much time and money collecting - so PLEASE keep coming and borrowing! I do have a page of books as well, but it is in need of an update.
So between the Book Fair and parent requests, I started thinking about an organization that recognizes math books for kids every year.
It's called Mathical - Books for Kids from Tots to Teens.
This year's winners have not yet been announced, but the top 3 from last year were:
If you have a favorite math book or game, please share by leaving a comment below. Have fun at Game Night and I'll see you at the Book Fair!
