Roll and Color a Wildflower game learning benefits.
There are several skills kids learn while playing this 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.
How to play the Roll and Color a Wildflower Game:
1.Make sure each student has: The math game page, and coloring tools.
2.To determine who takes the first turn, each student rolls the die. The player with the highest number goes first.
3.Turns are taken in a clockwise direction.
4.When a player rolls the die, they color the section of the picture that matches the number that was rolled.
5.If the number has been rolled already, the student passes their turn.
6.There is no winner really. The goal is to complete the coloring of the picture.
(Note: 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.)
The format of the Rolling Rainbow Preschool Math Game Roll offers differentiated Learning.
“Differentiated instruction addresses the needs of students of differing abilities and learning styles in the same class”. Anyone who has been around a group of children of the same age, probably notices kids naturally learn differently.
Some kids learn visually and are naturally drawn to learning colors and shapes, so this is another example of how this works.
As you know, some kids learn by doing, so they might solve different problems in a way that doesn’t make sense to other kids.
The versatility of this game allows for kids of different ages and skill levels to play together.
Why I created Roll and Color a Wildflower Math game:
I noticed that most preschool worksheets put a lot of emphasis on reading, but there were less worksheets available to practice math skills.
While we were focusing on practicing counting, I needed a worksheet that allowed students to have fun while practicing other math skills.
