BAT COUNTING GAME
I love when we can repurpose items and use them for different learning and play activities. We started this math activity by creating some egg carton bats out of egg cartons and foam sheets.
Then we used a glitter glue pen to draw numbers and sets of dots on the bat wings.
For the math activity kids matched the correct wings to make each bat.
Once your child is finished matching the numbers and sets you can use the bats to practice more number sense skills by: 🦇putting the bats in order from least to greatest
🦇putting the bats in order from greatest to least
🦇ask the child to show a bat whose number is greater than ___ (i.e., a bat whose number is greater than 2–answer 3, 4, or 5)
🦇ask the child to show a bat whose number is less than ___
🦇identify bats with odd numbers
🦇identify bats with even numbers
And don’t forget to PLAY with the bats when you are finished. They’d even be a cute addition to a small world for Halloween!
