We put the dominoes face down and took turns choosing a tile, counting the dots on each side of the line and adding them together. He was instantly hooked! It took a little less than ten minutes to play the game. I love that we are practicing subitizing, adding and recognizing that there are several ways to construct a number (five = 0 + 5, 1 + 4, 2 + 3, 3 + 2, 4 + 1, 5 + 0) while playing.
Hee hee, sneaky math fun. I love it!
