Please note: all of the maths games require dice and counters. For the games in this pack you'll need dice labelled from 1 to 6 (numerals or digits) and dice labelled from 0-5 (numerals or digits) .
In the game instructions, I often state 'a set of counters' is requited. I leave the number of counters in a set up to you fabulous teachers! In my classroom, my kiddos know a 'set of counters' means 12-14. Sometimes they won't need that many and sometimes they may want more. It depends on how much time they have for practice or how challenging the game is for them.
