Dinosaur Peg Counting and Addition

These dinosaurs are a great way to practise number identification and making small collections.

To play simply have your students select a dinosaur, identify the number and then clip on the matching number of pegs. I found these mini pegs in my local $2 store. They are a perfect size and get those finger muscles working extra hard! I love squeezing in a little bit of extra fine motor practise wherever possible.

For a simple extension why not have your more capable students create a colour pattern when putting the pegs on.

The dinosaurs are numbered 1-20 or in addition to 1o.
