Kids Maths Games - Struggling To Get Them Involved In Learning Maths? Then Maybe Time To Change Your Approach!
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Trying to teach young kids is hard as it is, but when you are set the task of teaching them maths, then suddenly everything becomes even harder. Maths has always been one of those subjects that people consider boring and difficult.

So how can you teach Maths, without boring the kids to death?

It took me a while to realise how I could make maths fun and enjoyable. There's no need for kids to have to sit there reciting boring times tables all day. This isn't the only way they can learn.

When I realized I was losing the kids attention, I decided it was time to take a different approach to how I was teaching these kids. I started introducing simple kids maths games in the classroom and boy did it make a different.

Not only did the kids learn more about maths than they had ever learnt before, but they also had loads of fun doing it. I don't know about you, but I never imagined that kids would actually be excited to learn maths.

What I was quickly learning, was that these kids realized that the better they became at maths the better they would do in the maths games. This was quite a breakthrough for me and it's now made a huge difference to how I teach all my classes.

So What Kind Of Kids Maths Games Are There?

So many, I think it would be impossible to name all of them. But here are a few that I have used that work really well:

  • Fifteen - This game is so easy and fun. It's all about teaching the kids about adding. Basically you print off bingo style sheets and the kids have to colour in two or three numbers that add up to fifteen. The last player to be able to find three numbers to add up to fifteen is the winner.
  • Subtraction Snakes - This game is for four players, each player takes 4 number cards. Players then try to create a true subtraction equation by placing the number cards over the snakes.

I've made up quite a few of my own games, but I sometimes find that I am a bit short of time. That's why it's great to have a resource where I can quickly find a new game and print it off. Kids Maths Games are so much more fun for the kids and it's really gets them involved.
