There is power in learning through play in your homeschools. If you are looking to add a little more fun and creativity to your learning, this guide to games for every subject in your homeschool has everything you need.
We love gameschooling because it keeps our daughter engaged and teaches skills through real life application. Gameschooling gives us lots of opportunities to learn through play together and make fun memories along the way. Along the way, games have become an integral part of our homeschool experience.
72 Games For Math In Your Homeschool
We discovered the secret to learning math facts quite by accident. It was getting close to the holidays and our daughter was really struggling to learn her math facts. She was frustrated, I was frustrated, and everything was becoming a struggle. We decided to take a break and come back to it after the holidays. During our break we played lots of games together as a family, including my husband’s favorite: Yahtzee.
When we started lessons back after the break, I was amazed to discover that our daughter suddenly knew all her math facts. She could even total 6 + 6 + 6 in her head. We knew immediately that the change was a result of all those Yahtzee games and our love affair with math games began. Since then, we have discovered tons of awesome math games for teaching fractions, multiplication, complex addition, prime numbers, and more.

At first, I was reluctant to add games to our normal homeschool routine. We loved family game night, but I wasn’t convinced that playing games together could actually contribute to our homeschool in a real and important way. When we discovered the magic of games by accident, my eyes were opened to a whole new way to homeschool. Now, we wouldn’t want to approach homeschool any other way.
