I'm so excited to share a really addicting game that only takes a minute to learn, but has provided endless fun for my kids (and my husband and I, too!). It's a game called Shisima, and comes from Kenya. I'm so honored to have the opportunity to guest post at B-Inspired Mama, where I explain where it comes from, how to play, and how to make your own game board for your family! :) I hope you'll check it out and let me know what you Keep Reading...

## Summer Math Camp: Week 1

I'm so excited to share with you a really fun event that I'm hosting at my house this summer! I'm teaching and reviewing some important third grade math skills to a wonderfully sweet group of girls, and I want to share my plans, games and ideas with you!

## Taking Math Outside: Even and Odd Number Beanbag Toss

To continue our math review using games outside, I decided to review skip counting by two's and knowing the difference between even and odd numbers. Obviously, my daughter is too young to understand that a number is even if it is divisible by two, but she does understand skip counting and how to use that knowledge to determine even or odd. Rather than simply sorting flashcards into piles of even numbers and odd numbers, I thought it would be Keep Reading...

## Taking Math Outside: Shape Scavenger Hunt

## Let’s Get Cooking! {Math Fun in the Kitchen}

One of the best ways to engage reluctant math learners is to make math fun and relevant. We use math every single day, but it's not always clear or obvious to our kids! One way that I use math all the time (usually without even thinking about it) is in the kitchen. Measuring correctly, converting measures, doubling a recipe for the freezer-these are all important ways to apply math in our everyday life and a very easy way to include my kids and Keep Reading...

## Problem Solving by Drawing a Picture

I am a very visual learner. Whenever I am facing a word problem of any kind, my initial reaction is to draw a picture. Even if it is a fairly simple problem and I think I already know how to solve it (or even already know the answer), I will almost always still draw a picture. While this is an especially useful strategy for visual learners, I believe that problem solving by drawing a picture can be helpful for any student! -->Pssst! Do your Keep Reading...

## 4 Reasons Teaching Math Vocabulary is Vital

Photo Credit: woodleywonderworks via Compfight cc (Text added) There were many reasons why I opted to major in mathematics rather than history, art history, or English (although let’s be honest…I never really considered majoring in English.). One of the main reasons, however? Math doesn’t require reading and writing. Just numbers and problem solving. That was my thinking anyway, as I jumped into my freshman year. And to some extent, I Keep Reading...
