### Monthly math roundup: Math Teachers at Play 53

We’re excited to celebrate the availability of Motion Math’s Pro editions and Motion Math: Hungry Guppy with this week’s Math Teachers at Play blog carnival, a monthly round-up of math-related blogs. We had some great submissions we’re excited to share with you – thanks to everyone who participated!

Let’s start with some math learning experiences – Bon from Math is not a Four Letter Word shares her story of her creativity got squished in high school. How can parents and teachers encourage creativity?

Denise from Let’s Play Math discusses what we should be focusing on teaching our children in the early years to foster number sense. Hint – it’s not formal arithmetic skills!

Rodi from the Talking Stick Learning Center shares what it means to allow a child to discover math on his or her own.

File this under too cute and amazing – Addi, a 3-year-old, learns to add with our newest game, Motion Math: Hungry Guppy

From the Baby Steps blog, Ritsumei demonstrates how to include a math lesson about fractions while teaching her kids about Alexander the Great.

Speaking of combinations, what if you could combine language arts and math? Here’s a game that challenges players to find symmetric words, from Guillermo Bautista of Mathematical Palette.

While our fun math games foster number sense in learners, what if you didn’t have your iPad with you? Sue Downing shares Place Value Cups, a hands-on activity that teaches… place value 🙂

Colleen Young shares a collection of her favorite mathematics games, pulled from a number of sources. There’s too many games to go into detail here, so take a look!

Finally, we had a super submitter, Cody Kikuta (who also participates a lot on the Motion Math Facebook page!) who shared his favorites on our call for submissions post – scroll to the bottom to see his comments!

That’s all for this month’s Math Teachers at Play blog carnival – Which posts are your favorite? Share in the comments below.
