Helping Children Learn Math at Home
Tips and Activities from Math.com

Our class uses Everyday Mathematics, The University of Chicago School Mathematics Project. We play games to learn many skills. We will be using manipulatives such as pattern blocks, unifix cubes, wooden blocks and a variety of items for sorting. We will also be counting, making and reading graphs, copying and making patterns, comparing, classifying, labeling, and adding and subtracting. Every week you will receive a Family Letter with a math activity to try at home with your child. Here are some Math Activities for kids.

Cool Math for Kids

Card Game - Ace, 2, 3
Each player gets 7 cards. Anyone who has an ace sets it down, and if no one has one then the first person draws a card from the remaining deck. The next person then has to put down a 2, the next person a 3, etc until you get to king and then it starts all over again. If someone doesn't have the card that they need when it is their turn, they draw a card from the deck. The first person to get rid of all their cards wins.

The MegaPenny Project
Visualizing huge numbers can be very difficult.
This project aims to help by taking one small everyday item,
the U.S. penny, and building on that to answer the question:
"What would a billion (or a trillion) pennies look like?"

Math Facts Chant for Ten

Make a ten. Make a ten.
We know ways to make a ten.
9+1 and 8+2;
They have sums of ten. It's true.
7+3 and 6+4;
Do you know there are two more?
5+5 and 0+10;
Now let's say them all again!
