Batter up! Are you ready to hit some home runs? Hit as many baseballs as you can and watch your score increase.
To play, simply move your player up or down. Then, tap the screen or click the mouse to swing at the ball. Hit as many as you can to achieve your best score! After five attempts, choose the numeral that corresponds to the number of balls you hit.
Playing this online five-frame game helps improve recognition of numerals and also builds number sense. In addition, it prepares students for higher-level math skills including using a ten-frame, addition, subtraction, and more!
After showing students how to play, you can have students play the game in pairs, individually, or even assign it as homework!
Here are some ideas for using this game in class:
- Ask students to write down their scores for 10 rounds of Batter.
- Ask students to add their scores from 2 rounds of Batter.
- Challenge students to write down an addition equation that reflects their score.
