Well this year I have been working with children of various ages who have literacy and maths difficulties and I would like to stress how important it is to play games!! I created these number games with focus on different concepts and they can be played in pairs. Ideal for 5-10 minutes during the school day. Or even given to take home for practice. Also suitable for homeschool.
The 5 games focus on: matching, bonds of 10, counting, adding, subtracting and counting back. They can be used for the 4-7 age group or children with specific learning difficulties where they may need to grasp basic skills concepts. Children will be learning while having fun!
So the 5 games games are:
Animal Zoo- an animal matching game to numeral and word.
Zoom to the Moon- a game in the style of 'Snakes and Ladders' but with a space theme.
Ocean Animal Bonds of 10 Top Trumps- played in a similar way to 'Top Trumps' but with an ocean theme and focus on subtraction.
Jive in a Hive- an adding game using dice.
Turtle back to One- Counting back from 20.
Instructions are included on separate sheets. All you will need are counters and dice.
Have fun playing these games and I hope your children will enjoy them!! Thank you!
