The math alligator game

One game I’ve been playing with Celia we call the ‘alligator game’, it’s a math game. We’re super wild and crazy around here with our games 🙂 She likes it though.

She draws two cards that each have single digits on them, counts out the pom poms to match the number and then sets up the ‘alligator’ to ‘eat’ the bigger set. She’s got the hang of greater than and less than and number recognition. The challenge is counting out the bigger numbers (7, 8, 9) in pom poms without getting distracted. Or having her brother take them. Ewan thinks the pom poms are the best things ever and spent 10 minutes pouring and squeezing them next to us today.
