Grid games support the development of children's ability to count with one to one correspondence, counting and identify numeral. To play a grid game, children roll a game die, identify the numeral (or amount of dots) on the die, and count out that amount of manipulatives to cover each picture. You can use different types of manipulatives (seasonal - jewels, acorns, candy hearts, etc.) or stones (I use the vase filler kind that are clear or white). Children play until their grid is full.
