This past weekend DOB discovered the Yahtzee game in the attic. The ducklings saw us playing and naturally wanted to be included. We agreed, after we had added felt to the cup so that D4 wouldn’t scream every time we rolled.
They both caught on to the general idea very quickly. D2 somehow managed to roll three Yahtzees in his first game. D1 wrote some of her own scores and would often comment on which numbers would be used to write a score (25 would take a two and a five). They had to count groups of numbers (three fives, four twos) and thus learn to think of groups as objects. They had to sequence when they had a straight.
And we all had a blast. I don’t think we’re missing anything by not having worksheets to count and color the apples.
