lay this game to help students practise counting down from 20/10.
My students love counting down from 10 on the mat and saying 'Blast off' so I thought they would love a game involving it.
This game is for small groups of 6 or less students.
Each student get a rocket and in the middle is a container or pile with all of the number cards.
Students take turns pulling out a card, reading it and putting it on that number on their rocket. If a student does not know the number they get told by the teacher/EA and out it back into the pile and wait for their next turn, and if they already have that number on their rocket they do the same thing.
The 1st player to fill their rocket and then count backwards from 10 and say 'blast off' is the winner
I play the 10 version with my pre's on A4, but if you have kindys you may like to enlarge to A3 also so it is bigger for them to read and pick up.
There is a version with numbers on the rocket to make it easier and one without to make it more tricky
