A game to practice subitizing numbers 1–6.
Use this resource in your classroom when learning to subitize numbers 1–6.
Print out the game board and heart die on cardstock for added durability. Cut out the die and construct it using glue or double-sided tape.
Students play the game in pairs. Each student gets a Cover Up! game board and a set of counters to play with. Students take turns rolling the heart die, saying the number rolled, and covering one of the matching numbers on their game board. The student to cover all of their numbers first wins!
Alternatively, students can play on the same game board. The student to cover the most hearts at the end of the game wins!
Print the game board and die on red or pink cardstock and use it in the weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day.
This resource makes a great math center activity for your students!
Common Core Curriculum alignment
Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
When counting objects, say the number names in the standard order, pairing each object with one and only one number name and each number name with one and only one object.
Understand that the last number name said tells the number of objects counted. The number of objects is the same regardless of their arrangement or the order in which they were counted.
Count to answer "how many?" questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1-20, count out that many objects.
