Yesterday was a very productive day. Among other things the boys and I played frisbee, except this game of frisbee had a bit of a twist. I used paper plates and number each one 1-10 and then on the other side numbered them 11-20 (1 and 11 on the same plate, etc).
This game was great. I has been wanting to play frisbee for quite some time. I would throw the “frisbee” at him and when he caught it he would have to tell me what number was on both sides. As a way to switch it up a little bit I would ask him what number he wanted me to throw to him, and to find the plate with the number and give it to me.
This was a great way to teach Isaiah how to recognize numbers 11-20. He already knows numbers 1-10, but with this game I also wanted him to see the relationship between 1 and 11, 2 and 12, etc.
Games like this are great for children that are more active. The same can be used for the alphabet, colors, shapes etc.
