Bears on the Bus

Here are a few extra ways to use the bus game mats from Bears on the Bus (numbers to 20) and Ten Bears on the Bus.

Double Bears

  • roll a 1-3 dice (this happy face dice is from our Pond Coloring Club)
  • students make the number on one side of the bus
  • students make another equal group on the other side of teh bus, to show the double and find the total

Making Numbers in Rows of 5

  • students use the 20 frame bus
  • roll a 20 sided dice
  • make the number, adding bears or counters to the bus
  • make the number using sets of 5 of the same color
  • challenge students to say the number is rows of 5 - e.g. I made 12, it's 2 rows of 5 and 2 more
