Ever try to rev up up excitement for math just to have some groans come back at you? I was that kid when I was in school. Just didn't get math! Don't know why - just didn't; especially in elementary.
I used that dislike for math ever day when teaching. What can I do to get my kids psyched about math? How can I reinforce the skills they need without the attitudes?  Well, here are a few ideas you may want to try !
My kids LOVE games! If I can engage them in a game - I swear they don't even think they are learning!
