  1. Hi Sandra;
    This site is a gift, thank you. I do have a question about Skill Boards. Do the children just draw a line between the domino and the correct number of lizards or whatever?

    • Hi Marian,

      No there are many ways of using them.
      1. In partners, one student can roll dice and the other partner can find the quantity on the board no cover it. The first player with…covered wins.
      2. Student draws a numeral card and covers the quantity.
      3. Whole class activity, teacher holds up a quantity (e.g. Numeral, dot card, ten frame) and students cover the corresponding quantity with a counter.

      I don’t put instructions in the cards because the teachers can create a use fro them to be responsive to their students. Make sense?
