Getting Ready for Summer Fun

Today I am going to list a few titles of books filled with math challenges that are good recommendations for parents asking for ways to keep their children engaged in mathematics throughout the summer break.

In addition to paper and pencil type puzzles, children can use a lot of math skill playing card and dice games.

Two books by author Charles Lund, Math Games Played with Cards and Dice, Grades K-1 and Math Games Played with Cards and Dice, Grades 2 and 3 is filled with age and skill appropriate games that promote computation skills, logical thinking and mathematical reasoning.
