There are two games in this package:
--- Bug Catcher - 10 boards - near doubles number facts to 25
--- Bug Catcher Junior - 1 board - near doubles number facts to 13
--- A4 Poster of the Doubles and Near-Doubles number facts
There is no preview due to upload limits as the board has lots of artwork. Alternatively, I have a BUG CATCHER freebie in my store for you to check out and download if you wish.
You need a six-sided die and six counters or buttons per player.
Players throw the die, double it, then add one. They then cover this number on their game board. The first one to cover all the numbers is the winner.
The Junior version of the game has the same board for each player, so you will need to print multiple copies according to your need. I have them laminated and they last for years.
It is a fun way to consolidate the DOUBLES facts and learn the NEAR-DOUBLES facts. I use it in intervention and I can recommend it for that purpose. I find teaching the strategy is much more effective than random number facts. If you teach the strategy straight after the doubles facts you will find your kids will learn them quickly.
You could add the game to a Maths Centre and use the POSTER for extra support. That way you can differentiate and include mixed abilities.
