    Mastering Basic Math Skills: Games for Third through Fifth Grade

    By Bonnie Adama Britt Fractions, decimals, integers … children in third through fifth grade encounter new types of numbers and new concepts, and need to develop new skills to meet these challenges. Can they also have fun? Absolutely! This collection of games for children in third through fifth grade proves it. Games are organized in each chapter from simplest to more advanced, and many have variations that change the rules of play or make it more challenging once the basic game is mastered. Math games keep children engaged while providing the enormous amounts of practice they need to learn new concepts and math facts. All the games are correlated to the Common Core State Standards.
