DOING MATHEMATICS WITH YOUR CHILD FDK TO GRADE 6
This guide provides a variety of activities that will help parents support their child to see math in every day activities while supporting expectations in the Ontario Mathematics curriculum. This guide is available in multiple languages.
FEATURED MATH PUZZLES & GAMES
GAMES WITH MATH CONCEPTS INCLUDED
Mastermind: The object of the game is to break the code in the shortest number of guesses. One player sets a code. The other player(s) use any combination of the color pegs to guess what the code might be. By playing this game, your child will be using their logical reasoning to solve the problem.
Spot It: To play, your child will flip over cards to find a match. There are options for advanced play – looking for odd / even numbers, counting forward or backwards, or doubling numbers. By playing, your child will learn to recognize numbers and will see that the number seven always represents the same quantity of items.
Math Dice Jr.: The object of the game is to roll a target number to begin. Players then need to roll five dice, and choose whether to add or subtract their values to work towards reaching the target number. When playing, your child will learn that when you add whole numbers they get bigger and when we subtract them they get smaller. They can see that a quantity can be represented in different combinations of parts. They’ll also learn about number relationships – “12 is 4 bigger than 8, so I need to subtract 4 to get to 8”.
