Say It, Count It, Write It Monster Math Game 
Give each child a Monster mat and a number dice or dotted dice, and wiggle eyes.  Have the children roll a number dice. Have them identify the number on the dice (say it). Once they have identified the number have them count out the wiggle eyes (count it). After the children have counted out the right amount of eyes have them write the number on the math mat with a dry eraser marker (write it).

  3. Thank you so much for the monster freebie. When I finish my comment, I'm going to go buy the pack at TPT. I made a printable with "My monster has _______ eyes." My K students are going to write in the number word. I also made a key with the number word and the right number of little googly eyes. I ran off black and white copies of the monster that my kids can water color. Your color copies will be for the groups recording number words. I love your idea and am looking forward to seeing what goodies you have in your packet. Thank you so much!
