Buying a set of flash cards and using them nightly is a great way to master the basic addition and subtraction math facts. You can also use a regular deck of cards to practice facts. Just display two cards at a time for each player in the game of WAR. Add (or Subtract) the value of the two cards to determine who wins the play. Face cards can be used if they are given a value such as zero or ten.

Being able to measure the world around us is a life skill. When we cook, build things, and buy shoes we need to understand measurements. When scientists send spacecraft to the moon or perform experiments they need to measure. When artists paint or create sculptures they need to measure. Think about all the things you do every day and you will see how many ways you need to know how to measure. We measure length, weight, capacity, volume, temperature, and time. There is an entire webpage for learning about time on this site.

Get it? COOL!
So a 2 could be worth 2...20...200... and into the
and so on,
and so on,
