One of my favourite Dr. Seuss books isn’t actually written by Dr. Seuss, rather it is part of the Dr. Seuss series of Beginner Books. The book I am referring to is called “Because a Little Bug Went Ka-Choo” written by Rosetta Stone (I think that might be an alias). If you have never read this book it follows the domino effect a tiny bugs sneeze has on a seed, a worm, a tree, a turtle, a pail, a farmer, etc, etc. Like I said a domino effect. Whenever I read this book my mind wanders off to addition – one thing adding on top of the other. So, why not make a fun math game to go with this book.
1. using the foam pages, cut out the shapes of each character in the book, use the pen to add any details
6. Expand the game – My 8 year old is learning about graphing and percentages. She selected 5 different characters and put the data into a graph. Also, my 6 year old moved from adding two numbers to three numbers. We also worked on adding all the numbers together.
