This Jigtate Printables puzzle presents children with groups of objects that they must count and match to the correct number, up to the number 19. However, this includes a special object that is equal to 10 normal objects and which is used to represent the numbers between 10 and 19. This presents numbers in their numeric form.
Included in this pack is two versions of the game, a cut down version that contains just nine tiles and a full size version that is made up of 15 tiles. There is a separate game board for each version and the tiles and game boards are both supplied in A4 and US Letter sizes. Also included is a cheatfold word list that can be used for learning, revising and testing.
Jigtate Printables puzzles are based on our digital Jigtate ePuzzles, which were so named as they are part jigsaw and part rotating puzzle.
Players have to match the pairs to place the tiles in order to complete a puzzle. This helps the player to associate pairs, to think quickly, to reinforce vocabulary, to recognize words and letter patterns plus more specific learning outcomes depending on the word pairs or mathematical problems used. It also helps to demonstrate that by breaking down large complex tasks into smaller and easier steps, we can make seemingly difficult processes much easier to manage.
The Jigate Printables puzzles are produced in black and white to keep printing costs to a minimum and to give students the opportunity to color their game boards and playing tiles.
