TEN Games

Dear Parents and Carers

Each week a Maths game with resources will be sent home to play for the week. Please keep the resources in a safe place preferably in a box of some sort so that these resources can be used again and again.

Some of these games the children will have already played and so they can be the “teacher” and explain the game to you. Some will be new to them.

Start playing the game at the “Elephant” level. If this is too easy you can move to the next level. (Penguins then Fish, etc.) Please remember that the games should be fun and not so challenging for the student that they do not enjoy playing the game.

If possible play the game at least once every day.

Other “hands on” maths games could include jigsaw puzzles; cards games like “Fish” or “Uno”; boards games like “Connect 4” and “Snakes and Ladders” and construction toys like “Lego” and building blocks.

If you have any questions or comments about the games please email me on: jill.hadobas@det.nsw.edu.au

I can reply by email or if you include a phone number I can call you.

Kind regards

Jill Hadobas
