LeapFrog Adventure to the Moon Math Tip 4
In celebration of the upcoming release of LeapFrog’s “Adventure to the Moon” DVD, here is Math Tip #4!
TIP #4: Since It’s the Weekend — Make it a game night!
Playing number-related, age-appropriate board games, such as Chutes and Ladders, can help support many math-related skills. For an important twist, help your child practice saying each number he or she lands on and passes by with each roll of the dice. For example, if your child is on 23 and rolls a four, help him or her say “24, 25, 26, 27” instead of “1, 2, 3, 4.” This way, your child can learn about order and magnitude (i.e., how large or small a number is in relation to other numbers).
