Counting Fun and a Freebie

This is my first year where most of the pm group can't count to 5 or identify 1-5 so I am trying to make a big push for this right now. Here are some of the activities we have done to reinforce the early number sense concepts.

I have some of these number sheets for 1-4. The students find the number and stamp it that number's color. You can get these for 1-12.



You can grab this freebie here. 

  We also have been using pattern blocks to make numerals 1-5. You can get these pattern block number cards on Making Learning Fun



This picture is a little hard to see and I plan on doing this next week. Each of the sheets of bubble wrap have a number 1-6 on the back. Students will roll the dice, count the dots and then jump on to that number of bubble wrap. It should be a lot of fun for them to be able to hear and feel the bubble wrap pop underneath their feet.



This past week I showed the students a number and they had to put that many clips on their bat. They really enjoyed this activity and loved the bats!

I have some similar number clips for year round. There is a number on the back of the spider plate and the students count out that many clips and put them on the plate. They all really enjoyed this too!


These are just a few of the activities we are doing, but I am hoping that it will help the kiddos start to identify and count out objects 1-5. These are easily differentiated for students that are able to do this skill too because you can just change the number of what the kids are counting out or add two dice instead of just one.

Have a great Saturday! It is a beautiful day here. We are going to go get our pumpkins today, which Ethan is VERY excited about.
