Living Math: Dominoes

My budding learners are loving using Math Lessons for a Living Education book. They enthusiastically complete the worksheets and are ready to move on to the next story. But I’m not ready for them to. I notice that while they complete the sheets correctly they have yet to grasp the concept of true number recognition. How to solve?

Play!

Yep…dominoes is a wonderfully simple game to introduce number recognition. And they LOVED it! Just match the correct number of dots with the actual numeral. Sounds simple but for a 3 and 5 year old can be quite challenging. This made a short 15 minute math lesson draw out to an hour of wonderful playtime. This is what I like to see!
