1 to 6 Dotty Dice
Let’s play our favourite game with a 1 to 6 dotty dice
Here’s how to help your kids move on from knowing a number name to developing understanding. Have fun playing a favourite dice game with a 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. It is very common for a young child to miscount the number of jumps - do not worry.
Pass it on On your turn say, for example, “one” (as you move forward one space), “two” (as you move forward the second space), “three” (as you move forward the third space).
