Counting On Mittens

Materials:  game boards (one for each player), a spinner with numbers 0-9.

Objective: TLW practice adding the number on the mitten to number that is indicated on the spinner.  TLW use counting on or doubles strategies to add numbers.

The first child looks at his big mitten to determine what number he will start adding with.  The child spins the spinner and adds the number he lands on to the number that is on the mitten on his game board.  If the answer is not on the game board the player loses his turn.  If the number is on the game board the player puts a cube or a marker on the answer. 

The player to fill all his animals up is the winner.

To make the game more applicable the players can write the equation on a piece of paper as they spin.

Optional:  Use a decahedron (10-sided die) instead of a spinner.

This is a game created and shared by my wonderful team mate and co-presenter at the K-Crew Conference this summer, NBland.  She gave me permission to share it with you on today :)
