    LOVE the game. Cora sounds like my Jeb. I can rope him into anything if it has a sword or cars or legos involved. Ha!

    Here’s a game Annabelle and I like to play that is similar, but not really: It’s called Euclid’s Game. All you need is a hundred’s chart. We also like playing Nim. It is AMAZING what all both of us have gleaned from playing this game (Euclid’s game) and it’s not just subtraction The patterns and algorithms are so fun to see. Save your game boards so you can compare and contrast what is happening. Seriously, it fun. Here is a site with instructions. So totally easy! We use a game board that has 4 hundreds charts on one page so we can see patterns in math that evolve.

    Does your daughter do the Everyday Math curriculum? I taught second grade, and I feel like this was one of their games. I love, love, love Everyday Math, and of course I had to supplement and make my own materials based on class/individual needs, but as a whole, it was my favorite math program. I still have some of my materials and have been saving them for my kids. By nature, I am not math-inclined, but I actually enjoy teaching math more than reading. I wonder why that is!

      Micaela–I’m not sure. I can ask her teacher, though–now I’m curious. That’s so interesting that you enjoy teaching math more than reading!! If you’re up for sharing something that works for your kiddos, let me know!! I need all the help I can get! :)
