We visited Ms. Conjamalay’s class this week so they can teach all about Kakooma. The idea is in a group of numbers, find the number that is the sum of two others. Sounds easy, right? Sometimes it is, but other times the answer is right in front of you and you just can’t see it. To solve a single puzzle, you often end up doing dozens of calculations in your head, sometimes more than a hundred! Before you know it, your mind is sharper and your math skills are better. This is just another fun way of practicing our basic facts and number sense. Have your child show you how it’s done:-)
