Who doesn’t love unicorns?!?! They are so whimsical and fun! My daughters just love unicorns and I think every little girl on the planet has wished they had one as a pet at some time in their life. Did you?? This free unicorn math roll and count printable game is perfect for preschool and kindergarten kids who need more unicorns.
You can pair them up with one of the sets of unicorn mini erasers that Target has had over the last couple years. Or you can use some pretty pink gems to count “unicorn dust”. Whichever option you choose, your unicorn-loving kids will be thrilled to do math when they can do it with a unicorn.
Unicorn Math Roll and Count Game
Roll and Count math games are always fun because there is an element of surprise. There’s a different number with each roll. This keeps children’s interest up and is less prep for us.
I’ve included two sets of dice inserts for easy differentiating. The first set uses some whimsical numerals, and the second set uses unicorn horn tally marks for kids who need more of a challenge.
Just slip the included dice inserts into your differentiated instruction cubes for some counting fun!
We also love using our giant foam dice for math activities! They are so much fun to roll AND they are quieter than normal dice, so they don’t disturb the other kids. For kids who are just starting to learn numbers, they can use the traditional 1-6 die. For kids who need more of a challenge counting, use the 1-12 or 1-20 dice.
You can also use our favorite double dice to create a fun addition activity for kindergarteners (or extend it to older students by using double dice for multiplication).
We like using the dry erase pockets for our Roll and Count activities. They are much easier and more cost effective in the long run than laminating.
Although we still laminate all.the.time. When I KNOW my daughter is going to be obsessed with an activity I will laminate it, so it’s always ready to go for her. These dry erase pouches are a fabulous alternative though.
