It’s a math dice game with movement you don’t want to miss!
This math dice game combines learning with movement.
My preschooler can count 1-10, and my preschooler can identify each number amount correctly.
Repeat, then repeat.
Don’t rush it. Preschool is preschool for a reason.
We have plenty of time to build upon the necessary math skills. Right now, allow your preschooler to play, manipulate, and discover new math concepts. This practice will give them the experience to take math to a higher level when they enter Kindergarten.

These are such great tips! My daughter knows how to count both in English and Spanish; knows a bit in Tagalog and she recognizes numbers too. So I need this.

Love this!! I need to get the dice too. My little would love it. Pinned to try it soon!
Love the dice! You have such great ideas. Pinning this for my little one.
I guess I never realized WHY littles needed to be able to identify their numbers, so thanks! Learned something new. Those dice are really cool!
I am a kindergarten teacher and if every parent did this with their pre-schooler, it would be a GREAT thing. Thanks for getting the word out:)

Thanks so much, Kim! This comment means a lot. Thank you.
This is a great post! I love the wooden dice set and game you provided.
Those dice are so much fun! I completely agree with your post. Lots of practice is needed to increase speed.
Number recognition is so important! I love that you work on the skill in a fun playful way!
I love this game idea! I have 2 in preschool, but one goes to Kindergarten in the fall. This would be an awesome game for really impressing number recognition.
This was really informative and a great read!! I can’t wait to try these with my preschooler and I am a new fan of your work. I’m a up and coming newbie blogger but your work has been inspirational. Thanks and maybe in the future we can collaborate together.
