Dominoes

Hi friends,

As my 11-year-old daughter used tons of dominoes to builds her science Rube Goldberg project, I was thinking about ideas on how enhance numbers and amount identification in a fun way and thought about dominoes, hint, hint!

These dominoes can be used for number identification and to match the number with the correct amount.

Here's how I did it!




Materials needed: 10 8 by 7 card stock or construction papers, cutout numbers 1 through 10, dots, circles, or stickers, and a marker. 

I drew a black line along the middle of the paper and glued the numbers on the top half.

I added the dots on the bottom half. I began with the card with the number-one and put two dots, number-two card and put three dots, and so on.

This is the final product....doesn't it look cute!?
For more durability, you may want to laminate the cards (which I will do tomorrow).

Play time!

As soon as I finished, Gigi, my three-year-old began putting them together and counting the dots and finding the number that would go with he dots, without explaining how to use them...smart girl!

Let me know what you think and how did it go!

Be well!
