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.
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.
