Mathematics is more than just numbers and equations; it's about problem-solving, critical thinking, and having fun while learning. For kindergarten and Year 1 students, hands-on activities and games are essential for building a strong foundation in math. That's why we're thrilled to introduce an exciting and interactive game: Spin and Collect!

What is Spin and Collect?
Spin and Collect is a free print-and-play game designed to reinforce number recognition,

counting, and addition skills in young learners. This engaging game offers a dynamic way for students to practice math concepts while having a blast with friends or family.

How to Play Spin and Collect

  1. Start by downloading the game template by clicking the button at the bottom of this page.

  2. Gather the following materials:

    • Counters (e.g., small coins, buttons, or colored tokens)

    • Pencils for each player

    • Spinner wheel (or a paperclip to use as a spinner)

    • Game board

  3. Set up the game board by placing the spinner on top of the wheel in the middle of the playing area.

  4. Player 1 takes the first turn. They spin the spinner in the middle of the game board. The spinner contains numbers 1 through 3 represented in various ways, such as MAB blocks, words, tens frames and numerals.

  5. After spinning the spinner, Player 1 reads the given number aloud and then puts a circle around the corresponding numeral on their game board (either on the left or right side of the spinner).

  6. Player 1 then picks up the given number of counters based on the number spun. For example, if the spinner lands on the number 2, Player 1 picks up 2 counters.

  7. Player 2 takes their turn, following the same steps as Player 1.

  8. Continue taking turns until each player has completed 10 turns.

  9. After 10 turns each, players add up the total number of counters they have collected.

  10. The player with the most counters wins the game!
