Here are two variations of a dice race game I made for our Wild Animal theme. You can pick either one you want to use.
Print out the game and prepare the dice by cutting out the animal dice pictures and attaching them to wooden cubes with double sided tape. Children will roll their die and use a bingo marker to stamp that animal on their game. They continue rolling and stamping until one animal wins the race. Have the children count how many they stamped of each animal and decide which animals had the most and least. Did any of the animals have the same amount?
I also included a recording sheet with the game for those who need it (more for Kindergarten, but it could be offered as a choice for advanced Pre-K kids). Not all Pre-K children are ready for recording their answers on a recording sheet. I am using this game at small group this week, but I also used it last year, so it is kid tested. 🙂
The second variation of the dice race game uses dotted dice. Children roll the die, count the dots, and stamp the corresponding number. They continue rolling and stamping until one animal wins the game. I might put this game in our math center as a choice.
