Third- Fifth graders will have a 24 tournament in the math lab next week. 24 is a great game to help with fact fluency and mental math. The goal is to be the first one to make 24 using 4 numbers using multiplication, division, addition, and/or subtraction. The third graders are playing a modified version to start with where they only use addition and subtraction to make different numbers.
There are various aps that you can download so that your child can practice the game by searching 24 in the app store. There are also some websites that have similar games your child can play.
The game is available on Amazon at
I'm looking forward to announcing the class and grade level winners next week!
