Valentines Math With Dice

20130201-184100.jpg
My per-kinder has been hard at work on number recognition and writing because she is way excited to start school this fall. Side note: Mommy is NOT ready, haha. Anyway…

How we played:
1) Roll the dice
2) Count the dots
3) Find the correct numbered heart
4) Practice writing the number

The excitement she had in anticipation for what she was going to to roll was probably her favorite part, along with rolling the same number and having to write it several times in a roll.

This was a simple & fun activity for my kiddos! They love any chance they get to play with their new diamond beads.

There are a couple of ways you could play with this activity tray.
1) Draw a numbered heart and count out the correct number of diamonds
2) Place any amount of diamonds on the heart, have your child count them and then locate the correct numbered heart

Both ways are great practice for counting and number recognition.
