First, let me show you how easy it was to assemble!
I printed out the Buggie Game Pieces, Spinner and the 4 parts of the Game Board.
It was quite easy to figure out where to cut so the board would match up when glued together.
The spinner base just needed to be cut out, along with the arrow. I laminated the base and used a hole punch to create a hole in the arrow and the base. I had to gently fold the base in half without creasing it to make the hole with the punch.
I cut the Buggies out and folded them on the lines to assemble them.
This is how they should be folded in order to be glued properly.
Just bring the bottom of each side down to the base.
Buggies all ready to play.
And two excited girls ready to play.
In this fun game the amount of spaces you move around the board is determined by the numbers on the space you are sitting on. Each space has a number that has a value to the tens place. When you spin the spinner you will either land on Tens or Ones. The number at the start is "12," so if you land on Tens you would move 1 space and if you land on Ones you would move 2 spaces.
I had the girls spin the spinner and then look at the number their Buggie was resting on. They had to tell me the number and tell me which numeral was in the Tens or Ones place. For example, if the spinner landed on Tens and the Buggie Game Piece was on "26" we would say, "This is the number 26, 2 is in the tens place." Then we would count 2 spaces.
I think it is a fun way for children to learn about place value.
We have also started our Butterfly unit, so the girls have started their copywork/handwriting practice of the poem, The Caterpillar. (We had a great surprise today and received our caterpillars in the mail. Such perfect timing!)
We will continue The Caterpillar poem and also put together the Step Book titled, Making of a Butterfly during the remainder of this week and next week.
