We play a LOT of games at our house. It's one thing that a family with kids ranging in age from 7-23 can do. Together! Not surprisingly, many of our games just happen to include a wee bit o' math.
For the longest time I've been wanting a math game list to pass along to teachers, parents, and homeschoolers who are interested in enriching children's math experiences at home through simple card and board games. This list, which also includes a few game-like activities, could be used in a variety of ways:
- letter home to families at end of school year
- math center ideas for school or homeschool
- early-finishers list
- a checklist for summer fun

Update 6/3/13: this handout is also used in the new Vacation Workstation, a great way to encourage kids to play games during school breaks.
