Virtual school has been really hard for everyone this year–teachers have it tough, parents are working double-time, and the kids are hanging in there, doing better than we ever could have asked of them–but it’s still tough. The younger and more hands-on the kid is, the harder it is to catch on to new information in this digital school world. We’ve been putting a lot of energy into making math more tactile.
What are you doing to keep the math brains rolling over summer break? For the multiplication-aged crew (whether learning or comfortable), we’re loving Prime Climb. Younger kids? Stick with me—this one is good for the addition-subtraction crew too—the whole thing age-adjusts perfectly if you play with addition and subtraction only.
