We played a Place Value Go Fish game. If you know go fish, you know this game. The idea is to match a number with its expanded notation. ie say a card reading 524 will make a pair with a card reading 5 hundreds 20 tens 4 ones. The one with most number of matching pairs is the winner. Use some index cards to make the card deck. We have plans to introduce many variations of the game and we will be exploring them one by one. Hope you like it.
It has been a while that mom and me engaged in active homeschooling. But Today during lunch, we played this interesting game Mom invented to refine my arithmetic understanding. I named the game "Find Mr.X". We picked up 12 lego blocks and I divided them into 2 parts 7 and 5 each. Mom will randomly take away some 'X' number of blocks from any of the group and I have to guess Mr.X. I scored all the time. Mom is as always very proud of me. Mom says, it will make me 'see' Math than simply doing it by theory.
