Spider Web Counting Activity

spider web counting activity

Let’s get spooky and count some spiders! This spider web counting game is a wonderful way to strengthen number sense. By placing a numbered group of spiders on its corresponding web, children demonstrate number quantity knowledge – the understanding that the written number “5” means five objects. Furthermore, this activity helps to develop counting, one-to-one correspondence, and number recognition skills.

So collect some creepy crawlers and download our free numbered spider webs! For heavy use, I recommend printing on cardstock and lamination.

Garden Felt Board Activity

Children love to use the flannel board, and I give them that opportunity as often as I can. This table top board is perfect for a small group. I like to gather two or three children and have them work together to create a scene. Once the activity is completed, preschoolers practice pre-reading skills by telling oral stories (about their picture) and acting them out. The possibilities are endless. This springtime activity also teaches color recognition, association, and helps improve visual perception skills.

Materials Used:

– Flannel board
Felt
– Our garden board felt templates
Scissors
– A Ziploc to store the felt pieces
