Head Over Heels for Teaching hosts this fabulous linky every Saturday! Today, I want to share about a great way to keep kids motivated in Math Workshop: Math Games! My kids get so excited when I tell them I'm going to teach them a new game. Little do they know, they are practicing math while they play! Muahahahaha! :-P Most games I teach them need very little prep- some don't even need a gameboard! If you've got some dice and some playing cards, you're set.
