If you have ever taught a kindergarten class, then you know it’s impossible to get your students to sit and do a boring worksheet about adding and subtracting. When I was student teaching, I was working with a little boy who was absolutely certain that 2+3= Whaaaa? Or at least it sounded that way because that’s the only answer I would ever receive. So, I got him up out of his chair, grabbed some army men, and started adding them together. It was suddenly much easier to add using something he adored.
These clever little beauties in a bag are an excellent resource for getting your confused five year old into adding, subtracting, or simply identifying numbers. As a teacher myself, I’ve used them for a number of activities including Musical Numbers and Add-A-Bag. The games are a fun way to incorporate vital learning skills with educational knowledge!
If you are interested in the games mentioned above, simply reply to this blog and we’ll get back to you on how to play the games!
