Review

The target age range for this volume is kindergarten through grade four, which is admittedly a pretty big range. However, these books are deceptively simple, as my introduction of several of them to our math games class at co op has attested. The children in this class are in grades three through six, and I have yet to use a game that the oldest students have scoffed at. ... Both volumes include so much more than just math games instructions! I have never had a homeschool resource that more closely matches my own philosophy and enthusiasm about making mathematics learning connected, engaging, and yes, even fun. I love what Gaskins has to say about working with your children as opposed to simply assigning them work to do. This sums up the philosophy that I try to keep forefront in our home, and it's the thing that makes these books such a valuable addition to our library of educational resources. 
     I cannot recommend them or Denise Gaskins' other resources enough. She is a homeschooling mother with decades of experience, and she is very accessible to those of us who are still in the trenches. She not only shares math games, she also shares a whole philosophy as well as endless variations and ways to approach teaching math. These books would be useful to any homeschooling parent, no matter the ages of his or her children. It would also be useful to a classroom teacher looking for new meaningful activities for his or her students. ... Highly, highly Recommended.

From the Author

As a young parent and newbie homeschooler, I tried to fit my children's education into the only model of school I knew. Textbooks, daily schedules, and slogging through one tedious workbook after another made education seem boring, when it ought to be a lifelong adventure. As my children grew, I noticed how much learning happened outside of "school" time, through library books or life experiences. We moved to a more relaxed, eclectic mentoring style. We discovered that even a math textbook can be fun when used as a source of puzzles.

On a daily basis, homeschoolers, tutors, and parents simply trying to help with homework experience the truth of the adage "The teacher learns more than the students." I've been learning more than my children for three decades now, and helping other parents learn more than their children for almost that long. I hope my books help to make math your children's favorite subject.

These games are great for using and practicing maths skills in a context in which there is some real motivation to do so. I love how they provide opportunities to explore a wide variety of approaches, including number bonds and logical thinking. There is also some thoughtful advice and ideas on mathematics education which I am glad to be reminded of, even though I have read Ms Gaskin's thoughts on these topics many times before on her wonderful blog!

The games use very simple materials, mostly cards and dice, and the few boards that are needed are provided. Each game also has tips on how to customise or extend it - maybe for players of different abilities, or non-competitive options. My children are always pleased, even excited, when I suggest one of these games, even ones that seem terribly simple like Tens Concentration. Sometimes they even ask to play them unprompted!

I have both books on Kindle, and really I would prefer a hard copy as it would be easier to keep handy, mark, and refer to during play. So get the paperbacks if you can!

This book has wonderful games for early elementary students. My 1st grader is thrilled that we incorporate games into our daily routine, making math even more fun than usual for her. I love that the author includes a link for printable game boards, ensuring that I don't spend more time making games than playing them. Variations for each game = SO many ways to explore numbers. You will love this book.

I bought this e-book to use as a portion of our math curriculum this year for my first grader. She loves games in general and has so far enjoyed all of the games we've tried, even asking to play multiple times. The author mentioned for one game that her older children are drawn in and I found that as well. My third grader especially will arrange to be in the kitchen during game time so she can jump in. The extra practice is good for her. Nearly every game requires just a deck of regular cards, which makes everything really easy for a busy mom.

One of my boys is not a fan of traditional workbook math so these games will help us switch things around. This will be a great way to introduce concepts, review and reinforce in a non threatening way, so he stays excited about math.
