We have been having fun with snowmen, winter, and mittens these last few weeks. It is desperately cold here in ND, so it is fitting. The forecast says that it could be up to a –57 windchill tomorrow. I need to put on some wool socks and crank up the furnace!
We played a fun little even and odd game this week. The kids had a blast playing it. I saw this idea on Julie Lee’s blog, and I thought I would adapt it to use with our favorite character….Pete the Cat! We love Pete the Cat, so anything with the image of Pete is bound to be a hit!
I made this super simple, super easy to make board and just cut 12 mittens out of construction paper. I broke out the ginormous dice too!
We rolled 1 or 2 dice and counted the dots. Then we counted out the correct number of mittens onto our “Petes.” If one Pete was missing a mitten, we discovered the number was ODD!
We kept track of our results on our dry erase boards. I had some super fun sheets for the kids to record their results, but the copier was broken, so I couldn’t use them! I think I’ll throw this in a center and have the kiddos do it one more time.
I hope your copier isn’t broken so You can use these sheets! Click on the picture below to grab yourself a copy.
What is your favorite way to teach and reinforce even and odd numbers?
