Kids can practice the concept of “exchanging” (exchanging ten of one value for one of the next higher value) with this appealing dog and doghouse exercise. Dog tray colors vary.
Children have so much fun they don’t even realize they are also practicing counting, addition and even subtraction!
Roll the dog die, the number the die lands on is the number of doghouses that is taken and counted. Continue rolling the die until ten doghouses are collected. When you get to ten houses, stop and exchange them for one dog. Repeat the steps until all of the doghouses have been exchanged for dogs.
Kit contains: 12 realistic looking dogs, 30 doghouses, dog die, dog tray and container to hold doghouses (may vary from that pictured). Play individually or with a few children. Extra dog dice are available to purchase.
