Library Journal - Library Journal
Designed for parents who want to help their children learn and enjoy math, this is also valuable for teachers. Each of the 66 games is thoroughly explained, an indication of the grade level is given, and a list of materials needed is supplied. Part 1, for kindergarteners, includes counting as well as size and shape activities. Part 2, for first and second graders, adds games on addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and size relations. Part 3, for third graders, presents games dealing with strategies and puzzles. While this book does not cover the complete math curriculum, it does treat important concepts and is very easy for parents and teachers to use. Recommended. Joanne Troutner, Tippecanoe Sch.
