Let’s Learn Some Math Facts

24 Feb

Yay!  It’s Friday!  As I sit here on Friday afternoon, we are dodging severe thunderstorms along the Eastern coast of NC!  It has been a great day to observe and talk about weather! Earlier this morning we had the opportunity to play a game that we put together a few weeks ago.  I think I saw it on Michael’s website-I’m not sure. But, anyway it’s a neat way to practice math facts. What you need:

Foam board

Colorful Duck Tape (2 different colors)

Some dry beans

Take the foam board and put a piece of duck tape down the middle going lengthwise.  Then evenly place 4 strips of duck tape vertically.  Write the numbers 1-10 (one number in each block). Make bean bags (wrap duck tape around some dried beans. Write the numbers 1-10 on each bean bag, alternating so that you have 1 number on each side.

Have your child toss the bean onto the board.  Whatever number it lands on they must either multiply or add the two numbers together.

Fun and easy way to practice math facts.
