“Roll for a Card” is a fun game that I have played with my own children and students to sharpen early learning skills. It's fun, easy, and takes about 15-20 minutes to play.
Items Needed: One die from a pair of dice, and a deck of playing cards. (Use the cover design side of the cards, not the number side.)
Players: One adult, one child, or up to four players in total. You can play this game at a table, on the floor, on top of the bed covers, at the beach, on a picnic blanket, or any flat surface where you and your child are comfortable.
This simple game helps your four-to-six year old understand four crucial beginning math skills named in national education standards.
