Games that you can play at home:

To reinforce what is learned in math at school, play these fun games at home!
Have your child teach you a new game and practice math in a fun, easy way!

PENNY/DICE GAME
Take 20 pennies (or more for a challenge) and put them in a pile. Take turns rolling the die and picking up as many pennies as the number on the die.  To pick up the last pennies, the number on the die must match the exact number of pennies remaining. When all pennies are gone from the pile, partners should count their pennies. The person with the most pennies is the winner.

TWO-FISTED PENNY GAME
Count out ten pennies, One partner will grab some pennies in his/her hand. The other partner will take the remaining pennies in his/her hand. How many pennies are in your hand? How many are in your partner's hand?
For example: my hand has 1 penny and your hand has 9; my hand has 3 and your right hand has 7.
Repeat with other numbers of pennies.

PENNY GRAB GAME
Place a pile of pennies on a table.  Each partner will grab a handful of pennies, count them, and record the amount using dollar-cent notation.  For example, 13 pennies would be recorded as both 13(cent sign) and \$0.13. When answer is correct, you earn a point.

DOMINO TOP-IT
Place all the dominoes face down between partners. Each player chooses a domino and finds the total number of dots. The player with the larger total gets both dominoes. Play until the dominoes are gone!

TOP-IT
Grab a deck of cards (take out ace, jack, queen, king). Place all the cards face down between partners. Each player chooses a card. Compare the numbers. For example, 5 is smaller than 10; 10 is greater than 5. The person with the larger number wins.

ADDITION TOP-IT
Grab a deck of cards (take out ace, jack, queen, king). Place all the cards face down between partners. Player 1 takes two cards and adds them together to find the sum (5+6=11) . Player 2 takes two cards and adds them together to find the sum (4+1=5). Compare the sums (11 is larger than 5, 5 is smaller than 11). The player with the larger sum wins.
