This is the first spooky game we’ve done so far this year and my daughter was so excited! I could see her face light up when she saw the spiders and I just knew this was going to be a winner! The very first thing we did was go over the numbers.
I would point to the numbers and we would say them together. I would also ask some questions like “Is this number more or less than the number 5”? Asking questions like that can really deepen a child’s understanding and knowledge even if you end up answering the questions for them after you ask. Trust me they’re listening and paying attention.
Then I gave Grace the spiders and off she went. I didn’t need to give her any other instructions. She knew exactly what to do. The best part was she was practicing other math skills during this game without me even asking! She started to create patterns with the spiders while she was counting them out and she was also asking me math related questions. It was AMAZING!
This Spooky Spider Counting Game was SO much fun! It’s a great way to teach number recognition and counting at home or in the classroom. This game was a blast and we will be playing it again very soon!
