A good teacher can extend the learning beyond the textbook, beyond the one hour time segment, and beyond the official school day.  Games have always been my secret weapon for keeping the learning going.  Math is a subject that often gets a bad wrap for being boring, tedious, or a drudgery. With a few simple math games added to our day, the learning continues and no one complains!

With so many wonderful games and resources out there, I thought I would round some up to get you started on encouraging a love of math in your home!
