Do your kids find spiders super cool? Do you agree, or do you think they’re super creepy? Either way, these spider math games are sure to be a big hit. Create a number line, practice counting and number recognition, and get kids moving.
Spider Math Games
For the spider math games, we used foam spiders (you can use paper ones too), spider erasers, and dice.
Spider Number Line
Create a number line with the spiders.
Roll the dice and move your spider to the correct number. Start from one and jump from one spider to the next. You can also practice counting on. Start from any number and then count on from there.
Use the number line for simple number recognition as well. Roll the dice and then find the number rolled. Take your spider to that number.
Choose a big spider. Add the correct number of little spiders.
Toss a Spider
Lay out the big spiders. You can put them in numerical order or a random order. Toss a little spider onto the pile. What number did it land on?
Can you toss the spider to land on a specific number? Can you land a spider on number 4?
Spider Number Find
Spread the spiders out across the room. Call out a number (or roll the dice). Run to find the spider with that number. My daughter took a little spider with her to help.
