Printable Counting Raindrops Game Boards & Play Dough Mats

Kids love games and learn so many important skills through playing them.  Counting Raindrops Game Boards and Play Dough Mats are great for maths centres, working independently or within small groups of 2 to 4 players.

 

The Counting Raindrops Printable Maths Games and Activities are a great addition to any early childhood environment and numeracy program. They provide an opportunity for children to count numbers 1-20, number recognition, subitising and basic addition skills while having fun.

 

Children will love the fun Number Characters and Multi-cultural children. Laminate for durability and reusable resource and can be used with play dough and dice games.

 

Game 1:

You will need 2 to 4 players, page 13 – 16 (count to 10) or pages 17-21 (count to 20), dice and blue glass gem stones. You may wish to use play dough or other tokens such as pompoms, sequins or buttons.  Children may also play this game independently.

 

Subitising and Counting 1 to 10

Printable Counting and Subitising Game Boards - super fun

The objective of Counting and Subitising Game is to roll the dice until all the raindrops are covered with gemstones.

 

Children take it in turns to roll the dice and the number shown on the dice is the number of gemstones they count and place onto the raindrops template. When all the raindrops are covered, play again.

 

The image above shows the Counting Numbers 1 – 10 templates and using one dice. There are only 10 raindrops on the template. Please see below for the template consisting of 20 raindrops for counting numbers 1 – 20.

 

Counting and Basic Addition 1 to 20

As children develop, we also have Counting Raindrops Templates for Numbers 1 -20. For these mats, I have introduced two dice to encourage basic addition.

We used dotted dice and also numbered dice to encourage subitising skills and number recognition.
