A couple of days ago I had the pleasure to be introduced to this delightful happy looking game. My husband and I spent four solid hours playing it and loved it. It is a bit like scrabble with numbers and perhaps that is why I enjoyed it and can’t wait to play it again; this time with the boys during school.

This is from the women who doesn’t like math. However, I do like teaching math because I’m learning all those things that didn’t make it in there the first time around. Sumoku is one game that will help “get those things in there” the first time. Here are a few things that this game give the fun occasion to teach or reinforce:  skip counting/ learning multiples, color sequencing, addition skills, patterns, observation, and strategy.
