We’re getting ready for back to school, and that means it’s time to add a new set to our roll and color math games series. We’ve covered almost all major seasons and events throughout the year, and we’ve got one or two more ideas in mind before we offically wrap up the series. Our newest roll and color math game set is perfect for the first weeks of preschool or kindergarten. In each set kids get the opportunity to practice various preschool through first grade math skills in a fun hands-on way.
For back to school we chose a crayon theme. Pair it with other school supply type math manipulatives for math fun during the first weeks of school, or use it any time that meets your needs. This free printable excerpt from the full crayon math games set can be used to practice identifying numbers and matching sets.
These math games sets can be used in a few ways depending on your preferences. If you’d like to use the set over and over again you can use manipulatives like small pom poms, glass beads, or mini erasers (shown) to cover the correct numbers as you play. You could also use sheet protectors and dry erase markers.
We chose to pull out some cute apple mini erasers that we grabbed from the Target Dollar Spot recently. Maybe you could even find some crayon ones! We thought about using real crayons but they ended up rolling all over the place and frustrating my little one, so I don’t recommend going that route.
In this free printable set you get a game board and game cube to practice identifying sets and numbers for zero to five. These skills are most appropriate for preschool and kindergarten students. If you’d like to practice other skills or need more options for differentiating instruction then the full 28 page game set may be best for your needs.
