Learning Goals: Math, Subitizing, Number Recognition, Numeracy, Counting
- Write numerals or draw dots on paper plates or piece of cardstock.
- The children roll a die, identify the number of dots on the die and find the plate with the matching numeral.
- To extend this activity, support children in rolling two dice, adding these numbers together, and locating the corresponding numeral. When adding two numbers, a helpful strategy is to begin with the biggest number and “count on” by the smaller number (e.g. 5 counting on 2 more is 7).
