There are several skills kids learn while playing this July Preschool Math Game. Children will practice their fine mother skills and color identification skills while playing. The game’s format is interactive which allows a child to apply what is learned. Kids also gain confidence because they can count the dots and color independently.
Children will learn several vital skills playing this game while having fun!
Children will build visual discrimination skills while playing this game. Visual discrimination is being able to pay attention to very small differences. This skill is important for learning alphabet letters.
Kids learn improve their subitizing skills when playing this game. Subitizing means that one knows the number of a group of objects without actually having to count.
Players practice working memory while playing this game. That’s because the game requires the same repeated steps:
- Children have to remember what the number of the dice is.
- Find the matching amount on the page.
- Color the matching amount.
How to play the July preschool math game:
Make sure each student has: The math game page, and coloring tools.
1. To see who takes the first turn, each student rolls the die. The player with the highest number goes first.
2. Turns are taken in a clockwise direction.
3. When a player rolls the die, they color the section of the picture that matches the number that was rolled.
4. If the number has been rolled already, the student passes their turn.
There is no winner really. The goal is to complete the coloring of the picture.
(We use a big foam dice from the dollar store. The students don’t have to worry about dropping the die, throwing it too hard, or losing it.)
