How to Develop Number Sense and Numbers

How to develop number sense and numbers in math for kindergarten and primary students to make learning and practice engaging can seem daunting but it just takes a bit of time to create a few games and activities.

We have been working so hard this year to develop number sense!

What do we do?

We used dice to play many games! Dice are a perfect tool to help kiddos develop number sense and subitizing.
