PRAISE FOR MEGA-FUN MATH GAMES AND PUZZLES FOR THE ELEMENTARY GRADES

"Finally a fantastic collection of timeless math games and puzzles that can be used in a differentiated class, a math center, or even a math enrichment program."
—SUSAN BIGHAM, first grade teacher, James Fitzgerald School, Waltham, Massachusetts

"Students in my methods classes found the rich activities in this book the most useful resource presented to them in the course. Pre-service teachers used the activities as part of their lessons, to maintain skills, and as math centers in the classroom. One of the nicest features of the activities is that they require minimal resources and preparation time. No elementary mathematics teacher can afford to be without this magnificent resource in their professional collection!
—PAMELA A. HALPERN, PhD., Associate Professor, Salem State College, Salem, Massachusetts.

"Michael Schiro's Megafun Math Games and Puzzles for the Elementary Grades stands apart in thanks to its unique pedagogical framework for game and puzzle use in the classroom! The "why" and the connections to the NCTM Standards are as important and useful as the print-ready classroom activities."
—SUZANNE ALEJANDRE, Director of Professional Development, The Math Forum, Drexel University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

As a third grade teacher, I found that most of the games were very appropriate for my students. Some games required more preparation and creation of materials, which is why I gave the book 4 out of 5 stars. Otherwise, I think this is a great book! Students will enjoy playing these games and learn a lot too!
