With the COVID-19 precautions like most of you we are out of school for the rest of the year, so I have been looking for ways to:
- Keep screen time down
- Have fun
- Encourage learning without doing a million worksheets
- Find things that will engage both of my kids (big age gap here, 13 and 8)
I wasn’t sure I would find a math related item that would fit all those things, but I came across this game at a thrift store a while back and we are loving it.
Prime Climb has Versatility, Easy Rules, Quick Game Time and it’s Super Fun!
My second grader is in the middle of really learning multiplication tables. This game really helps promote that, but it can also be played just using addition and subtraction. There are helpful hints built into the game so that kids can figure out the answer they need without feeling frustrated. The hints are a great way to teach multiplication in a very visual way.
This game also teaches prime numbers. My 13 year old who is really great at math still found this game challenging by setting harder rules which required him to use more division and avoid using the hints on the board.
It was also a good mental math workout for me!
