The Dot Lot - Math Fun

(4 Years)

I found this fun math activity on Pinterest, it's from ABC and 123.  During nap time, I quickly drew out two boards.  When Wild One woke up, he saw me at the kitchen table taking a picture of the board.  He asked, "What's that?  Can I play?"

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!
