Cuckoo Bird Before and After is a fun game where your students will practice identifying what comes before and after numbers to 20. There are 3 choices of game boards-numbers to 10, numbers to 11-20 and a blank board where you can add your own numbers in.
1 colored board numbers to 10
1 black and white board with numbers to 10
1 colored board with number 11-20
1 black and white board with numbers 11-20
1 blank colored board
1 blank black and white board
number lines to 20
Play in pairs. Decide who goes first. I usually will say the person with the shortest hair goes first or the person who is the tallest etc…
Players place their pegs on start. Player 1 rolls the die and moves the number they roll..
On the first trip on the board, players says what is one more than the number they land on.
If they player says an incorrect answer they move back the number they rolled.
Player 2s turn.
When a player touches the yellow bird they turn around and go back down the board. This time the players says what is one less than the number they land on.
For example, if a player is on the circle with the number 4 and they roll a 5 (see diagram) they will then land up on the circle with the 9..
Play continues until 1 or all players make it back to the start.
If a player lands on a cat space they read the directions and do what it says.
