Dinosaur Derby 0 – 10 Board Game: Stomp! Stomp! Stomp! The dinosaurs are coming to play with your class. Players practice their 0 – 10 number recognition as they make their way around this Dinosaur Derby board. When landing on a space players attempt to identify the number shown. The first to the finish is the game winner.
Circus Tent Number Formation Game: Step right up, step right up… the circus is in town! This game assists in developing, subitisation skills, number recognition and number formation (writing). Each player is given a game board and die. Players roll their dice and trace the numeral representation of what was rolled. For example if the number four was rolled on their dice, the player traces the number four with a whiteboard marker. If the number has already been traced they must roll again. The first player to trace all of the numbers on their game board is the winner. Includes – 6 Circus Tent game boards and instructions for use.
Write the Room – Count the Seeds: 1.The teacher places the apple cards around the room without showing the students.
2.Students walk around the room with a recording sheet, clipboard and pencil, searching for the apple cards.
3.When a student finds an apple card they must look what letter card it is count the number of apple seeds shown.
4.Students then need to find the box with the same letter on their recording sheet and write their answer.
5.When the student has filled all boxes on their recording sheet they can take it to the teacher for marking or use the answer sheet.
A Whale of a Time Number Recognition Game: Can you hear the whales singing? They are calling your students to come and play with them! In this ocean themed game, all whales are placed down on the table. Players take turns selecting a whale and identifying the number shown on its body. If the player is correct they can give themselves a point and then practice correct number formation by tracing the number on their recording sheet (great practice for those kiddies who often reverse their numbers). If the player is incorrect they are correct then they can also trace the number. However no point is awarded. All whales are thrown back after each turn. The first player to get ten points wins. Includes – 21 whale number cards, number tracing/recording sheet and instructions for use.
Number Trucks: Students can develop their counting skills with these number truck cards. This set of cards cover the numbers zero to twenty. Students select a card and identify the number shown on the side. Students then place the matching number of unifix or MAB blocks on the back of the truck. Includes – 21 number truck cards and instructions for use.
Write the Room – Space Counting: My students will never get sick of Room Writing activities. If you are new to the concept, here is what to do… All cards are printed and laminated (optional). Cards are then placed around the room for students to find. Each student is given a recording sheet and walk around the room searching for the cards. When a student finds a card they look at the number on it. This number corresponds to the box in which they need to write their answer. For this room write, students must write in the numbered box the number of pictures counted on the card. Once you do one room write with your class you won’t be able to stop! I often have a room write set up in one section of my classroom for one group to do, while another group is doing a small group activity with me. With the answer sheet these take you less than twenty seconds to mark. It is a great tool for monitoring student progress with a concept in a fun way. Includes: Instructions for use, an answer sheet (to make marking easy), black and white printable recording sheet and 16 space counting game cards.
Apple Tree Counting Play Dough Mats: Students identify the number shown on the playdough mat and put that number of apples on (using either play dough or the printable apples included in the file). A great activity for number recognition, fine motor development and counting skills.
Pop Dice Recognition Game: Players play this game individually by rolling one die each. Players attempt to recognise the number shown by the dots on the dice. If the player has the corresponding numeral on their game card they can cover it with a counter. If the player does not have the numeral they roll the dice again. The aim of the game is to cover all numbers. Includes – 6 game cards and instructions for use.
