Gross Motor Math Games

The Counting-Action Dice game is a big hit  at our house: grandparent-parent tested, child approved and low tech (easy for this grandma to make).

The Counting-Action Dice game is a gross motor math game perfect for preschoolers.  Kids can practice counting and one-to-one correspondence while doing fun body movements like clapping, jumping and spinning.

This math game is so simple to make and loads of fun for the kids! And because it gets them moving, it’s perfect if you’re stuck inside on a rainy or snowy day.

Our new favorite game: Counting-Action Dice
Using her books, brought math alive for our kids.

Also, check out Peggy Kaye‘s time-tested book Games For Math. The book addresses some basic math concepts for kindergartners through third grade.  I found her book to be easily incorporated into our home school.  The games are tangible ways to enjoy math.  (Yes, the word “math” and “enjoy” in one sentence!)
