I love playing games. I really love playing board games. I grew up with Monopoly and Scrabble and, later on, Trivial Pursuit and Risk. I didn’t know until I was a teacher of young children that there are wonderful games designed specifically for very young children and most of them support mathematical concept building in one way or another.
This month we are going to look at some of my favorites, but before I let you in on my “go-to” classroom games, I would love to know which board games you love to play? Is there a classroom favorite or a family favorite? How do those games integrate mathematical concepts into their designs?
Let us know and we can explore those as well.
