Kids love to play games. Moms love it when their kids are learning. Everyone is happy when they find an activity that satisfies both criteria.
Last year I noticed a blogger friend (Julie from Highhill Homeschool) had created a game called SPEED! It's a card game that teaches skip counting from 2's to 9's. When I first read about SPEED!, I thought it would be too difficult for my son, but as they year went on, his ability to play games greatly increased, so I thought I would give it a shot!
