Spring activities are always a hit in my classroom! Today I’m sharing a Spring Roll and Cover Math Activity that can be used in 2 ways! Let’s get started!
*Pair this with our Spring Centers & Activities for Pre-K/Kindergarten!
How to Use this Printable
This activity is simple to use and will provide your students with meaningful math practice. Set it out for morning work, math centers, or small group time. You can even have students play independently or with a partner.
This free download includes 2 roll and cover boards.
The first board should be used with 1 die, and focuses on number identification and/or subitizing.
The second board should be used with 2 dice, and focuses on addition.
Ways to Use
If you’re using the first game board, your students will be practicing identifying numbers and subitizing. To play, students roll a die and cover the corresponding number.

Quick Tip: To focus on subitizing, be sure to use a die with dots, not numbers. To put more emphasis on number identification practice, use a die with numbers. When students roll the die, they’ll read the number and find the matching number on the game board.
What is subitizing?
Subitizing is the ability to identify an amount without having to count it. Therefore, dot dice are perfect for this purpose.
If you’re using this activity for addition practice, use the second game board. To play this version, students roll 2 dice, add the numbers together, and cover the sum with a counter.
Quick Tip: If your students are in the early stages of learning addition, you’ll want to use dot dice. By doing this, you’re allowing students who are not yet fluent in math facts to count the dots as needed. For students who need more of a challenge, use the dice with numbers on them.
Both versions of this game can be played independently or with a partner. If students are playing with a partner, each child should have a different colored counter and follow the same directions that have been given.
