We love playing games in our homeschool! In fact, since we delayed formal math instruction, our kids learned math exclusively through math games until about grade four. There are so many great math activities, such as learning through board games, songs, and even simply using a white board for math. Why not make math fun?
Here is a collection of math games, including board games, printable games, and DIY games for you to check out!
