Touch Math Games

Touch Math is a commonly used tactile strategy that helps students to get off their fingers when adding, subtracting and even multiplying.  However, this methodology can be even more enticing for students when this technique is taught and then reinforced through fun kinesthetic games.  

Here are some fun ideas:

  1. Take a foam football and place the numbers and the touch math symbols on it.
  2. Blow up a balloon and cover it with the numbers and touch math symbols.
  3. Write the touch math numbers and symbols on large place mats with a non-skid backing.
  4. If you have access to a playground with a hard flat surface, write the numbers with their touch math symbols on the ground with colorful chalk.  What’s even better, let the students do it themselves.  
Cheers, Erica
