Games for Kids – Snakes & Ladders

 

Simple board games are great for young children to develop their math skills. 

 

Play snakes and ladders with you pre-schoolers.  They will soon learn to count and develop the skill of one-to-one correspondence.

 

Use one dice at first but once he/she can recognize the numbers from 1 to 6, add a second dice.  Very quickly they will begin to learn the addition facts to 12.

 

Play along with your child and ask,  “What do you need to get to the next ladder?”; “How can you get a 3 with two die?”; “I need a 4, what will give me a four?”  Just talking, while playing together, will help your child develop math skills while having fun.
