How do I say this politely…. I suck at Math :D. I have all of my life. So, whenever it comes to teaching Math to my students, I try my best to think of ways to make it fun, creative and overall something to look forward to. I don’t want kids to feel the way I did whenever Math period approached. Let’s make our Math lessons something to cheer about, so that kids don’t get lost in the tough concepts. To start, check out my idea for polygon card games called PolyGames! Here’s a look:

This is a twist on the original card game called “War”. Instead of the player with the highest number winning, the player who has the shape with the most sides wins! This game is meant to get kids familiar with recognizing how many sides each shape has.
Here is another classic game, but instead of numbered tiles, students match two-sided shape cards.
Here is a sample of the rules sheets for students:
This timeless game strengthens memory skills, while having students search for similar attributes (color & shape).
