Two Math Games

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.
Race to $1.00
You need: a partner, collection of pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters and a dollar bill, two dice.

Players take turns rolling the dice and taking that many pennies. On their turn, players may exchange 5 pennies for a nickel, 10 pennies for a dime, 2 nickels for a dime, etc.

Play continues until one player has collected enough coins to exchange them for a dollar bill. To make the game easier, use only one die or choose a smaller amount (50 cents) as the winning amount. As you play ask your child: How much money do you have now? Who has more money? How much more?

Homework ~ Read a good book or two. Check out a Bedtime Math story.
