Math Challenge
Below are a couple of fun games if you are looking for a math challenge for your child. One of them is also a fun game to play in the car. Enjoy!

Race To 20

You need a partner. Take turns. On your turn, you may count one or two numbers. So the first person says: "1" or "1,2." And the second person continues with one or two more numbers. The player who says "20" wins.
This is a game for two players. You need 21 objects - beans, pennies, buttons, legos, etc. Players take turns removing one object or two objects from the pile. Play until all objects have been taken. The last object to be removed is considered to be the poison. Whoever gets stuck taking it loses.
Reading ~ Read a good book or two.
Math ~ Home Link 4.5 Measuring with a Ruler
