Easter Math Game For Kids {In/Out}

When I taught first grade, our math program  included a lot of fun games.  One of those games was called In/Out.  It's such a simple game, and it's a great way to teach your kids math concepts.

I made my game Eastery by using Easter candy corns, and I used a peat pot with a glittered bunny on it (a plain cup and small pebbles works perfectly fine if you're not into the holiday theme).

In/Out Record Sheet
Cup (not glass or see through)
Writing Utensil

How To Play
1.  Decide how many counters to use.
2.  Have one player close his eyes, or leave the room.
3.  The other player hides as many counters under the cup as he chooses and covers them up with the cup.  Then he leaves the other counters out of the cup.    Here's an example.  If you're using 10 counters, then the hider could put 3 counters under the cup, and leave 7 counters out of the cup.
4.  The hider then tells the other player to open his eyes.  He has to guess (or better yet, mathematically figure out) how many counters are under the cup based on the total number of counters, and the number of counters outside of the cup.

Here's the In/Out record sheet.  You can print it by clicking here.  The record sheets have different numbers at the top.  Use the number of counters printed on the top of the record sheet.  I also included a blank record sheet so you can choose the number of counters yourself.

I  like this game because you can adapt it for any ability level, and for the cuteness factor, it can be adapted for any holiday.  I made a Christmas In/Out game last year.  Click here to check it out.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you found a little something worth your time.

  10. August 2021 was my first time ever going abroad. Although I have seen many people from abroad in Hollywood (or Bollywood) movies, the impression of meeting with  various kinds of people around the world cara menghilangkan jerawat made me so nervous. At first I thought that Americans are always blonde, white, and very tall. But, I knew that it wasn't true and some people had told me so. However, as I landed my feet on the US land, I couldn't resist to not asking questions in my head about the people around me. Why are some Americans  very white, have a beautiful blonde hair, and their eyes are so blue as clear as water. I found out that it was rather intimidating for me. rental mobil jogja I am a south east Asian born with black  hair, dark-brown eyes, brown skin, and a not-so-tall body. I wonder why God created us differently. Then I saw some people from other countries who are really black, I mean they have a very dark skin. In Indonesia, we sometimes identify skin color as white and black (it has nothing to do with racism), but what we mean by white is a very bright brown and what we mean by black is a very dark brown. It was just I had not seen someone like that yet. In addition, there are many other questions I asked. Why do they have such a thick accent, why do they love speaking so loud, or just why are they so tall.

    I think stereotype sometimes help a lot in encouraging racism.  For example, blonde usually is stereotyped as bad in mesothelioma vs lung cancer mathematics while Asians are usually very good in calculus and science. It is not always true for everyone, but it usually does. I have a friend who asked me, "Why are you so good in math? Is it because you are Asian?" I am sure he was just kidding, but he made me think. I have a part-time job as a tutor in a residential house and every night three to five students come in for help. Sometimes, they do need a lot of help in math, but sometimes their math isn't that bad. Some of them, as a matter of fact, do a wonderful job in other subjects but math. I was amazed by how good they are doing in biology, or graphic designs, or whatever they like. It made me realize that there are always good and bad in every person.

    It took me some time to get used to people around me. In my sophomore year, I joined an International menghilangkan jerawat dan bekasnya Organization named Students for Global Connection. It is a group of International students (including Americans) that provides a place for International students to make friends and organize events together. I met wonderful students from different countries across the world and we had stories to tell. Yes, we have many differences and we always work on them. However, isn't it nice to taste a piece of other countries in the world from people who actually from that country? Last semester we had an event called the Worldwide Showcase. It is a cultural show performed by different groups of students from different countries. We provided a place for International Students to show their cultures and for American public to see other cultures. It was a pretty successful show, and we were proud of ourselves. Finally, I understood that the differences are to be respected Jasa SEO Judi
