Penguin Math Addition and Subtraction Games for PreK and Kindergarten plus giveaway

Introducing my newest math creation, my "Penguin Math Fun Addition and Subtraction Games". I am so thrilled with how these games turned out. The games contain all original illustrations and I even had fun watercoloring the background of the Penguin Math Gameboard.
I made this game for my daughter "Little Red" who is 5 years old. She is really enjoying counting and adding these days, and I also wanted to review the concept of subtraction with her as well. After I finished making the game and showed it to her she was SO EXCITED to play it. Let me tell you, it was a big hit! She has played several of the games over and over again. While we were playing one night her big sister "Little Blonde" who is in First Grade said, "Mom, can I play too? It looks like so much fun!" Now for a seven year old this game was really easy, but I tell ya, she had just as much fun playing it as my 5 year old.

Some of the skills used while playing the "Penguin Math Games":
addition, subtraction, one-to-one correspondence, counting, recognizing numbers and number values, the sum of ten

With the digital version of this game you will receive both a colored copy of all of the games as well as a grayscale version (printer friendly version).
The games included in this fun pack are:
1. You will receive a simple addition and subtraction word problems game in which your child will add or subtract penguins using the “Penguin Math Game board”, the "Penguin Math Story Cards", and penguins provided up to the sum of ten.
2. You will receive a penguin counting game in which your child will draw one of the number cards provided and place that particular amount of penguins on the playing board.
3. Another game you can play with your “Penguin Math Fun Manipulatives” is you can have your child place the penguins on the playing board, and then simply have them find the corresponding number card that matches.
4. There are many additional math games you can play using the materials provided in your digital download.
Now, for some exciting news, I also have this fun "READY MADE" version of this game in my Learn and Grow Designs Shops as well. This is the version that we have been having fun with. You will receive all of the items I described above, but you also will get darling, and I mean darling, penguin erasers to use as the math manipulatives to play the games. You will also receive a storage envelope and storage container to store all of the game pieces in. Plus, all of the game pieces are printed in color onto heavy cardstock paper and are all ready laminated for you. So see, I did all of the work for you!
Here is the awesome container you will receive with your purchase that even comes with its own label. This organizer is perfect to store the small math manipulative pieces in.
Meet the penguins. I told you they were super cute! My daughters love how they are like puzzles, you can actually take them apart and put them back together. For this reason these penguin eraser manipulatives may not be suitable for children under three years old. The digital version is great for children of all ages.

These are so neat. I love the digitals, but the ready made version is awesome...I like it even more after seeing it in person and seeing how much fun your kids were having playing with it. :) Math never looked more fun.
