# Bat Number Line Games for Toddlers and Preschoolers

As a child progresses from counting by rote to linking number words that they say with actual numbers and math concepts it’s time to get hands-on with some fun math activities. For this week’s Virtual Book Club for Kids theme of Bats, we’ve got some number fun with our cute bats to work on number recognition and counting using number lines.

Stellaluna by Janell Cannon is a beautifully illustrated book that takes some of the fear of bats away showing that they are gentle and no different than other animals just because they are nocturnal.

## Bat Number Lines – Game 1 – Dice Game

Using a large dice that is easy for toddler to roll get them to roll the dice.

Count the number of dots on the dice.

Then find the matching bat.

Repeat and form a number line – if the same number is rolled again you can either take away the bat or miss a turn.

Extension – Print out two sets and see who can finish their number lines first taking turns to roll the dice.

With a focus on bats it’s a great time to look at the moon as well – why not try making this moon phase banner with your toddlers and preschoolers too.

## Bat Number Lines – Game 2 – Ordering the numbers

Using either a clothesline and pegs or masking tape place the bats in order hanging around.

If you would like to make it more authentic take a large sheet of grey paper and create a bat cave for them to hang in.
