Ladybug Number Quantity Activity

Ladybug Number Quantity Activity

Help these ladybugs get their dots with this cute, free printable game. This activity is a wonderful way for children to improve their number sense. It encompasses many math skills and concepts, such as number quantity and number recognition, one-to-one correspondence, and counting.

Many preschoolers can count in sequential order to 10, sometimes 20, but they may struggle when counting objects; repeating and/or skipping numbers. When teaching one-to-one correspondence (correctly assigning one number word to one object), have your young learners touch each item with their pointer finger as they say its number name out loud. Encourage them to go slow and to not say the number until their finger is firmly placed on the item. This will help them keep track of which objects have already been counted, so that they are not skipped or counted more than once.

MATERIALS USED:

– Our free printable numbered ladybugs
Black vase gems

Feed the Bunnies Counting Activity

I’ve been teaching for many years, and I am always looking for inexpensive, new ways to present learning opportunities to the children. I recently put together this free Feed the Bunnies math game. This colorful teaching tool attracts the children’s attention, and increases number sense (counting, number recognition, etc.).

We will be using this activity as an extension to the story Home For a Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown. This book is about a bunny is in search of the perfect home in spring. However, when he meets a family of robins, a frog, and a groundhog, the bunny realizes that not every home he finds will suit him. The bunny eventually comes upon the perfect home and someone to share it with. The beautiful illustrations of Garth Williams bring the story to life.

MATERIALS USED:

– White cardstock
– Plastic cups
– Our free printable numbered bunnies (1-10)
– Googly eyes
– Cotton balls
– Stapler
– Easter grass
– Plastic carrots (Walmart)

Favorite Farm Animal Graph

Spring has sprung, and we are deep into our On the Farm Unit. This week, we’ve been busy graphing our favorite farm animals. The children are learning that graphs are a way to organize information; their favorite animals are the information, and the graph is the organizer. Once the graph was completed, I worked with small groups to evaluate the data. We counted how many students liked each animal, and discussed the concept of more/less/same. Looks like it’s the horse for the win!

The clipart used, in this graph, can be found at Clipart Kid.
