What's the math in this game?
When children practice figuring out which numbers come before and after each other, it helps them better understand the number line. As children gain experience with this game, have them take on the adult role!
To print at home: There are 7 types of cards in the dot card deck. Each type of dot card can be printed separately on colored paper. We have suggested these colors in the directions, but you can use any paper available to you. For example, you can use blue paper to print the blue circle dot cards.
