Pyramid Math Card Game
This single-player game will give your child the opportunity to challenge his knowledge of basic math facts. Learning addition and subtraction facts up to 20 may seem tedious, but it lays the foundation for later math. It's absoulutely essential that kids get these facts down perfectly by the end of third grade.
Want to ditch the flash cards? Create a pyramid with playing cards, then challenge your kid to invent equations in order to remove cards. The player who removes the last card wins!
Play together and help one other find the best possible moves (or the longest possible equation). Encourage your child to use addition and subtraction to hone his automatic recall. Then watch as he improves his critical thinking skills while practicing his math facts!
