A List Maker's Life: Think it Through Thursday

Think it Through Thursday


Learning Objective: The kids will correctly identify & verbally name the numbers 11-30.

Materials:
~20 bunnies labeled with the numbers 11-30
~6 bunnies labeled with the word HOP

Instructions:
~Shuffle all of the bunny cards and place them in the center of the playing area
~Take turns by drawing a card & saying the number aloud
~Whenever a HOP card is drawn all players jump out of their seats and hop around like bunnies

This seems too simple...but for preschool age learners it is actually a lot of fun. My kids seem to enjoy this game more than some of the "competitive" learning games we play. Possibly because they can just be bouncy, active, and silly. They ask to play this one over & over!

  2. I like how this gets them active, too! Love the bunny die cuts. Do you have access to lots of die cuts? I miss that with being a teacher! So many shapes to play with!

  3. This is a great idea, I love how it keeps the kids up and moving. And you can differentiate for older learners by making it addition or subtraction problems.

  5. My 3 and 6 yr olds will love this! My 6 yr old is learning this but the 3 yr old could also play. I love games that the 3 yr old can play too.

  6. I don't think my 14 & 9 year olds would enjoy this but I now my little nieces will. What a great idea!

    Congrats on your win over at Blue Eyed Blessings!

  7. I love this idea. We are going to have to borrow it. Arin can count to 30 now, but doesn't do well with the recognition after 10. Thanks for the idea.

  8. My daughter Cheyanne would love this.
    You are not only learning but you can get some cardio exercise too.
