Motivated to Learn
One of the best ways for a child to learn is to incorporate what motivates them. My son is motivated by fun games. He loves winning and being competitive. Another thing that motivates him is his favorite toy, which are race cars. We needed to review multiplication, specifically the six times tables. Therefore, we created and played the Race Car Math Game.
Playing the Race Car Math Game
My son was so excited to play this game. He quickly got all the materials needed, which is listed below, for our competition. The rules were simple. You earn a point by having the fastest car and getting the multiplication problem correct.
We played this game for about one hour. At the end of the game, I was confident he knew his times tables. He was motivated to get the math problems correct because this was one way he accumulated points within the game. You can play this game with other math concepts such as addition, subtraction, and division.
Here is what’s needed for the game…
