Counting Backwards Activity

Written by Mommy Cameron | Homeschooling

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.

Materials:

  • 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)

To Play:

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?
