Equipment

  • Print off Template 1 per student
  • 6 sided dot dice
  • 6 markers red, blue, yellow, green, purple

 

Game 1

Subitise & Colour Numbers 1-6

This game template is for practicing reading and saying numbers 1-6. It also helps students with standard dice subitising (seeing how many, without counting) Read more about subitising here…

  • The robot picture already has the numerals 1-6 written onto the template. The focus of this math game is on visual number recognition and naming the digits 1-6, rather than on written number formation.
  • However you can ask the child to trace over the numbers if you think it is appropriate.

How To Play

This math game template is for practicing numerals 1-6. The robot numerals 1-6 have already been written into the robot, so the focus is on visual recognition and naming the digits rather than number formation. Play this version as a race with a partner or individually.

  • Player 1 rolls the dice and colours in the corresponding shape and then all the times they can see that number on their sheet only. Player 1 says the number before they can colour it in. They colour in as many of the same number as they can see.
  • Player 2 rolls the dice and does the same.
  • If you roll a number and it is already coloured in, you miss a turn.
  • The game continues until all the robot is coloured in. The winner is the person who colours their robot in first!

Game 3

Recognise & Colour Numbers 0-10

Game 3 can be for independent work to help students to recognise and say numerals 0-10 in sequence (forwards or backwards).

How To Play

The child chooses to count forwards or backwards, selects a colour for each number and completes the robot.  As each number is coloured in the child encourage the child to talk about the numbers using the following prompts:

  • ” This is number __ , the number after __ is. It is more/less than/ bigger/smaller than ___”. (depending on if counting backwards or forwards)
  • or “The next number is ___ “Or “The number before ___ was ___.”
  • You can also discuss the counting pattern connecting the idea that all numbers are made from 0-10.
  • You could use a 11 sided dice or 2 x 6 sided dice if you want to play it in pairs.
