Yesterday I shared with you the game we played during math time. Our main focus was on Conservation Of Number. We worked on the idea that even when we move around our five bats (beans), there are still going to b 5. Today's focus was on parts of number.
There are full directions for playing the Bats In A Cave Addition game on the LeapFrog Learning Path Website if you are interested. We played the game with 3 bats and took turns hiding bats and guessing how many were hiding. The kids loved the game and I sent home 5 beans with each student today. I told them it was their job to teach parents how to play the game, but the directions are on the LeapFrog website (above) for parents as well. I would start your child playing the game with only 3 bats, and then move to 4 or 5 as they are ready and becoming more confident.
