Today, I have introduced the children to a new counting game. You need 2 children or more to play. I was delighted to see how excited and interested the children were. They kept saying they love that game and they queued up to have a go.
The game is simple. Each card is turned face down on the table, showing dots in the pattern of a dice. The kids throw the dice and count the dots on it and then match them to a card. They then turn the card up. On the other side of each card, there is a leaf with 1, 2 or 3 ladybirds on it. Some leaf do not have any bug at all. At the end of the game, when each card has been used, the kids add up all their ladybirds and see who has the most! Simple. Great counting exercise!
