The games below help children to develop a strong 'number feel' and develop early calculation strategies. The games are also simple and enjoyable to play!
This series of bingo games, played using dice, help children to recognise quantities presented as tally charts, on 10-frames, finger patterns and in dot patterns. In Match Bingo children match dice patterns to quantities. In the later versions of the game children identify one less, one more or two more than the number rolled.
|Match Bingo||Roll a dice and cross off the matching quantity.|
|One Less Bingo||Roll a dice and cross off the amount that is one less.|
|One More Bingo||Roll a dice and cross off the amount that is one more.|
|Two More Bingo||Roll a dice and cross off the amount that is two more.|
The Calculation Bingo games all follow the same format: roll a dice, look for the yellow box with your number - complete the calculation in this section. Try to be the first to do all the calculations! There are visual prompts on each level; the games get progressively more challenging.
