Counting Snake Eyes
Snake Eyes is an activity which helps young students counting. It can be played in groups of up to 8.
Students form a circle. In the center of it, the teacher puts in a big pot of "money". In China I like to use the Hell Notes they burn on the street in remembrance of their ancestors in the afterlife. You can also use buttons, washers, poker chips. You'll need a lot.
A student rolls the dice, calls out the number, and counts that many out of the pot. Rolling Snake Eyes means the student has to put his or her winnings back into the pot. A variation is to have double Snake eyes--a pair of twos--which means you miss your turn, or whatever you decide.
