Mathematics Activities for Parents and Their Children

by Early Math Counts

Sometimes, I discover a resource that surprises me.  First, this comes from the feds – and even though there are so many wonderful public servants who work in government – I don’t always love what they are selling.

This page from the Department of Education website comes from the archives, but is still available.  It is a collection of activities that parents can do with their young children that center on math.  Most of them are everyday activities that parents are doing anyway, with simple twists that enhance and highlight the mathematical concepts.  It is a one-pager that might be worth copying and sending home.  The activities are divided into simple, moderate, and challenging and are color-coded for ease of use.

Let us know what you think?  Worth copying?
