Practice Makes Perfect
Most beginning math concepts all require at least some level of memorization. These concepts are the building blocks of mathematics, and as children get older, these skills will continue to build on each other. That is why it is so important for kids to learn the basics when they are young. And the best way for young learners to become proficient is through practice, practice, and more practice.
However, practicing math facts can get boring, and it is especially important to keep things interesting for young children so they do not get tired or frustrated. That is why I LOVE this series of no-prep math games created by ThisReadingMama, which you can download here for free!

ThisReadingMama’s no-prep math games are one of my favorite go-to resources to use with my tutoring students. They are quick and easy to use, cover a variety of skills, and are just fun! These games are also fast-moving which is perfect for keeping kids engaged.
The only materials you will need is the game board and a dice. I like to use colored counters for covering, but there are plenty of options, such as beans, or buttons. You could also use crayons to color in the squares, or slip it into a page protector and use dry erase markers.
