I recently spent a few days with a group of sixth graders teaching a unit on puberty. On my first day in the classroom, the kids were nervous, anxious, apprehensive and giggly! If giggly is not really a word then Im suggesting it be added to the dictionary, as I encounter it in the first few minutes of every 5th and 6th grade puberty class Ive ever taught. Okay class, let us begin. Day 1 We begin the unit by answering the most pressing question, "Why do we have to talk about this?" which the kids do a great job of answering for themselves. We then move onto "When will the changes start happening to me?" along with "What exactly will happen?" and "How long will it take until its over?"

Playing is a great way to learn math. I like miniature golf and billiards for learning about angles and force. Of course this may sound like Physics, Newtons Law of Relativity. And it is, but there is also no better way to learn geometry and algebra than with a practical application. What could be more practical than learning as you play? Wow, heres another real life example for learning math. I like playing games. You name it; board games, card games, strategy games. If it challenges me and tests my intellect and problem solving capabilities, I like it. Games like Nim, checkers, chess, mancala, Stratego, Battleship, Risk, etc. help develop logic sequences and strategy. Games like Uno, Skip-bo, Set, Rummikub helps children develop their ability to see patterns. Games like cribbage, gin rummy, Scrabble actually help children practice addition and multiplication.
