How Many?

One of the powerful uses of TinyTap is for the learners to create a game as part of their learning process. One of my first few ideas which was tried with a class of preschooler has been made into this sample game.

Each learner or pair of learners is given a pair of plates and some counters. They are then assigned a number say X which they have learned. They have to place the correct number of counters in one plate and incorrect number for the other. Then take a photo and Ask a Question “Which plate has X?”

The process of putting the counters onto the plate will mean having to understand exactly what a number means and also what it does not (which can be any other configuration). This is a powerful learning experience isn’t it?
