Bats To The Rescue, a counting game. This free game lets children practice counting while rolling dice and making bats gobble up obnoxious bugs! On your turn, you roll a die, count the dots, draw that many bats, and place each bat on a bug on your board. The one-to-one correspondence prepares children for addition, subtraction, and reading while engaging in an exciting and fast-paced game.
You can use it just for counting, or you can bring it out when you talk about things like bugs, insects, bats, habitats, and food chains. The boys love it. And so far, none of my girls have been scared away by the horned dung beetles!
