Choice Dotty Dice
Let’s play our favourite dice game with a choice of 1 to 6 dots or 5 to 9 dots
Here’s how to help your kids gain a feel for the numbers up to nine. Have fun playing a favourite dice game with these dotty dice and your kids will connect the pattern of dots to the number name and a number of jumps on the game board - it seems obvious when you know how but it’s really powerful stuff. Having choices in the context of a game will be really helpful to developing understanding. Your kids will see you making a good choice and winning! It is a normal part of learning for us to make mistakes. In the context of a game it is not important.
Pass it on Ask “why did you choose to throw that dice?”
