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)

Number Quantity with Farm Animals

Number Quantity with Farm Animals

This farm animal game is a fun way for children to exhibit number sense. By placing a numbered group of animals on its corresponding barn, preschoolers demonstrate number quantity knowledge – the understanding that numbers represent quantity and that quantity is represented by a number. Additionally, this activity incorporates counting, one-to-one correspondence, and number recognition. These numbered barns have been recently updated, and are now offered as part of our On the Farm Math and Literacy Activities pack.

Strawberry Counting Game

In a previous post, we used strawberry baskets for an art project. Well, now we are turning them into a simple, yet powerful math tool. This strawberry activity is a cute way to practice number recognition and counting skills. It is also wonderful for number quantity. The large numbers help the child to understand that numerals represent quantity and that quantity is represented by a numeral. Additionally, the strawberries can be used for set tasks; recognition, matching, separation, and combination.

And let’s not forget about quantity comparison. Children may use the baskets of fruit to make comparisons of weight, size, and amount.
