Preparing to Play the Fun Math Games

With a little bit of initial care these Fun Math Games for kids can be used over and over again.

Hints for Parents – Preparing the Games

  •  Print the games that you (and your child) have selected.
  • It is always a good idea to involve the child in preparing the games, eg cutting out pieces and putting into bags.
  • If the games require cards to be printed or made, store the cards in a separate plastic zip seal bag or envelope. Allow the child to decorate the bag or envelope with drawings or fancy writing.
  • Store games in a box eg shoebox. The shoebox can be covered with paper and decorated by the child. Laminating the cards can increase their lifespan.

Hints for Teachers – Preparing the Games

  • Games that require cards can be printed in the size shown or can be enlarged on a photocopier to create large cards that can be used for the whole class games.
  • Students can be involved in preparing the games . Students can print the cards, cut out cards and decorate the bags or envelopes. This will lighten the teacher’s workload and give students a sense of ownership of the games. The students will take pride in the fact that they made the games. At the same time it is also giving the students a sense of responsibility.
  • Laminating the cards will make them more durable and also more appealing. Remember to laminate the sheets prior to the students cutting the small individual pieces.
