Preschool Math Game: Dice and a Number Race

This math game is a fun learning activity for preschoolers!   I discovered Nicole from Activity Mom a few months ago and her blog is a lot like mine, full of learning activities for our kids!   Here is one of my favorites taken from her site.   Thanks Nicole for filling in and guest posting today while I am off enjoying sandy beaches!   This is simple counting game that she enjoys playing with her four year old with a pair of dice.

.

I tried this Number Race with B a few days ago and we’ve been playing it ever since.   It is a great way to practice early counting skills.   You can even adapt the game so that you use multiple dice and use addition or subtraction to get the numbers and fill up the board.

.

How to Play this Preschool Math Game:

  • Roll one die and count the number rolled
  • Put a sticker next to the number rolled (or stamp it, color it in, or even cover the answer with a piece of cereal)
  • The first number to have all of its shapes filled, wins the number race!

Instead of drawing this game board over and over again, Nicole created one on the computer so she could just print it out whenever they wanted to play.   Thanks again Nicole for sharing your learning game with us!

  2. This looks fun! My son loves dice. He invented a game called Five, and he plays it as often as he can talk one of us into it. I can’t wait to try this one with him.

  5. Love all your hands on activities! Another site that I recently discovered full of great resources for math games and hands on activities is:

    http://www.k-5mathteachingresources.com/index.html

    I’ve spent several hours printing games from there recently as all their resources are free.

  6. Thanks for this game, and thanks to Jane above for the k-5math site. Great ideas that we’ll use at our house. We’ve done something similar by creating a spinner on cardboard with the numbers laid out in a circle. The kids will spin the spinner and they get “points” for correctly recognizing the number. We’ve done it with Roman numerals, dice, etc.
