**The following are simple math games that you can play at home with your child to keep practicing skills.**

**1. Draw or look at a hundreds chart**

Guess My Number

Guess My Number

2. Pick a secret number from 1 to 100 and don’t tell your child what it is.

3. Have your child ask you questions to try and guess what the number is?

Sample questions include:

is it more than/less than

is it odd/even

is it a multiple of __

does it end in __

does it have more than ____ tens

4. Cross off numbers on the chart as they are eliminated by your child's questions.

5. Use a tally to keep track of how many guesses it takes your child to identify the secret number. Next time you play, try to beat that number of guesses.

Go 10

Go 10

Materials: 3-4 players

1 deck of cards, minus the face cards

Ace = 1

1. Deal out all the cards. The game is played like

*Fish*, except that each player is trying to make 10.

2. Each pair of cards that makes 10 is placed face up in front of the player who makes it.

3. The winner is the player with the most pairs when no more 10s can be formed.

** Try making bigger numbers like 50, 100, 200, 500, or even 1,000 by making the playing card a higher place value.

(For Example; if you want to play to 50 or 200, make a 3 playing card into a 30. If you want to play to 500 or 1,000, make a 3 playing card into a 300.)
