Large Format Dot Cards, Copy My Dots Game Board
What's the math in this game?
Children may count the dots on their card and the number of tokens they have to confirm that they have the same amount. Notice if children: know the number order when counting (1, 2, 3, 4, …) and can coordinate the number word said while pointing to one dot at a time. When they are able to count one object at a time in the correct number order, they are using one-to-one correspondence. Help them name the last number they count as the total number in the set—this helps them practice cardinality or knowing how many in all.
