PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

At times it can be challenging to engage children during math lessons as well as provide the content needed in order to meet the demands of the curriculum. That is why I’m very excited to share with you some of my favorite math games and activities.

Welcome to the Bumper Book of Fun Math Games and Activities. My goal is to provide you with a ‘go to’ book of math games and activities to help make your life as a teacher that little bit easier, but also to inspire you to try some new ideas in the teaching of math.
