Robot Domino Math Game

My kids love playing with dominoes and although they may not be able to play a strategic domino game, I still encourage the matching. This week’s #toolsforlearning are dominoes and I am going to share with you our robot domino math game.

Teaching number recognition as well as subitizing can be extremely tear free and fun for kids especially if you make it into a game.

How To Play

  1. Allow each player to take a domino and count the numbers.
  2. Choose the correct robot card that matches that number and place it beside the domino.
  3. Try to do as many as possible in a set time. You can try matching for 3 minutes and then allow them to work their way to matching as many as possible within a minute.

A FEW HELPFUL TIPS FOR OUR ROBOT DOMINO MATH GAME

  • Ideally, you want to have 3 of each card, so I advise that you print the cards twice.
  • I also removed the 0-0 dominoes as that was not our focus.
  • This game also works on addition. In order to highlight this pick up a domino such as the 2-3 domino and say, “2 dots and 3 more dots is equal to 5 dots in all” You can also use the term ‘plus’ as well.
