Jump to It!: A Counting Game
Your child can reel off his numbers. But does he have a real handle on what those numbers mean? This jumping game gets math off the page and into the real world-- and it works on both number sense and estimation, key skills for kindergarten readiness.
To play, each child picks a challenge card out of the box. Then they estimate how many jumps it will take to get there. The final step? It's time to jump to it... literally! As your child attempts to make it to his destination in the estimated number of jumps, he'll gain practice predicting distance, estimating, and connecting number words to amounts.
What You Need:
