This Pokemon themed grid game is great for students to work on math concepts of one to one correspondence, working from left to right, number identification, combinations of 10, basic addition and subtraction, and counting!
In order to play this game you will need a dice and some small counters or plastic chips. Print off the grid game and laminate for durability if desired. This packet includes 2 grids: a 10 frame for younger children and a 20 frame for older children.
Roll the die. Put the corresponding number of counters on the mat starting at the top left corner and working your way left to right, top to bottom. When the board is full, you win! (Everyone wins!)
As the child is working on filling in their board you can ask guiding questions such as "What number did you roll?" "How many are left?" "How many more do you need to roll to get to 10 (or to finish that row)?”.
For older students, once their board is filled, you can have them work on beginning subtraction skills as they roll the die and remove that number of counters off their mat.
