On Tuesday, our math objective was counting backwards. Recently I have discovered that any activity using a dice is a success. So I went with a simple activity to practice counting backwards.
- dice (we had a 6 sided, 12 sided and 20 sided die)
- number line (we used some number tiles that I had made for the BINGO game. I had Thing 1 put them in the correct order before we started)
Roll whichever dice you chose. Have the child find the number on the number line. Then they count down using the number line for help.
Thing 1 really got into the game. He kept moving on to the bigger dice himself.
What games do you play using dice?
