Developing Number Sense for Primary Students has never been so much fun! Three engaging, "hands-on" math games to motivate young learners is what you will get.
1. High or Low? Now I Know! Is a fantastic kindergarten and Grade One number recognition game that involves children with a multi-sensory approach.
Children flip dominoes, count dots, recognize patterns and determine which end has the greatest number of pips. Players then must decide if this domino belongs on their own game board or their opponent's. Children are motivated by the fun materials, plus the element of suspense keep them focused and intrigued.
This game is excellent for students of different abilities to work effectively together. Children are encouraged to "talk their mathematical thinking out loud" and cooperate in a supportive, "game player" way.
2. Counting On Dominoes is a wonderful 3 Addend Addition dice and domino game for students in Grades 1 and 2.
Children love the Dracula Counting on Mats and the combination of using both dice and dominoes as learning tools is a huge hit with all young learners. The colorful game board mats help students get to the right answer using their own addition strategies that also compliment the use of the number line, provided.
3. Snap To The Count is perfect for Pre-K and kindergarten students. Children begin with a concrete experience and move to a more abstract type of learning where they are subitizing and instantly recognizing the patterns from 0-6. The friendly level of competition is excellent for challenging young learners and these all make for fantastic "take home", homework extensions.
Parents love it when these game boards come home and thus, black-line masters have been included.
All three domino and dice games are wonderful whole class activities or can be included at any math center.
Listen to the "LEARNING" as your "Little Geniuses" play these "hands-on" math games.
