Turkey Squeeze Game
Skill: recognize, compare and order numbers 0-115
Vocabulary: number, number line, big, bigger, small, smaller, more, less, high, low
Assemble: cut out the number line and adhere to construction paper. In my district, my Kinder kids are expected to know 0-10 (Q1), 0-31 (Q2), 0-71 (Q3), and 0-115 (Q4). I have these numbers on different colors of construction paper. Cut out the apples and glue to construction paper. I would laminate all of the pieces.
How to play: Place the turkeys facing each other at the end of your number line. You could start out with 0-10 to teach the game, and then differentiate as needed after they know how to play. So, you would place the apples at 0 and 10. Say, Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½I am thinking of a number between 0 and 10.Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ Children take turns guessing the number. If their number is too big, then say Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Your number is too big/too high.Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ Now, move the turkey, on the right, to cover the number that they just said. If their number is too low, then say Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Your number is too small/too low.Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ Now, move the turkey, on the left, to cover the number that they just said. Keep repeating until you Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½squeezeÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ the correct number! When someone guesses the correct number, then yell out Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½TURKEY SQUEEZE!Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ You could also use real objects for the squeeze (turkey erasers, etc)
