Rock N Roll Math Time
All you need is a piece of chalk and two little stones. Create a tic-tac-toe board and fill it in with numbers.
If your child is adding small numbers together, fill it in with numbers like 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.
If they are more comfortable with adding a bit larger of a number, start with 6 and go up from there.
You can also use double-or triple-digit numbers if you are teaching mental math! Think: 250, 300, 500, 200, 425, etc.
Or, if your child is studying multiplication and is studying her 9's, make sure to get a couple of nines in there.
Roll the stones and away you go!
