GIVEAWAY TIME! - Winter "Roll and Write/Mark" Board Games

A follower asked me to make these board games with written numerals, so I did. I needed some ideas to work on at the weekend.

But before you check this resource, I want to tell you what I usually have in mind when I start planning an activity with my kids. For children to be engaged and enthusiastic about learning, you should:
  • connect each activity to your children’s interests;
  • connect each activity to something happening at that moment or that they like (certain holidays, something they have seen on a trip, something they are curious about, their favourite cartoon characters, etc.);
  • work in small groups, to encourage the development of socio-emotional skills (empathy, cooperation, dealing with conflicts, negotiation, etc.);
  • let children choose between certain activities (have daily centre play, free play – preferably both);
  • have clear routines, because they help children focus better, be relaxed, and understand what’s expected of them;
  • introduce an element of surprise or novelty with each activity: stickers, a “magic wand”, funny rhymes, dry-erase markers, silly actions, basically anything that you know children like, but don’t get to use or do all the time.
These math board games are a fun resource to have during winter in your math centres. Children don’t need too many instructions and they will soon be able to play without an adult. That’s why they’re great for small groups. I have laminated mine and we use them with dry-erase markers, so that we don’t waste paper or ink. Also, my kids love using markers and wiping the boards.

The kids will practice:
  • counting dots on dice;
  • adding numbers on two dice (2-12);
  • reading the numerals;
  • writing numbers 1-12 (on dotted lines)
