Leaf Count

Did you have fun with the corn counting activity?  Here’s another activity that helps the students practice number recognition and number ordering.Numbers, numbers everywhere!  It’s so important for preschool kids to begin recognizing numbers.  My goal is for my students to recognize numbers 1-10 for my 3 year old class and 1-20 for my Pre-Kindergarten class.

Currently we’re working on 1-6 in Preschool and 1-10 in Pre-Kindergarten.

You can download the Preschool and Pre-K Leaf Count Activity Here:  Preschool Leaf Count,   Pre-K Leaf Count

Enjoy & Happy Counting!

 

 

Counting Corn

It’s harvest time!  This year to practice counting and to celebrate the harvest, we cut out corn cobs and counted the correct number of corn kernels to glue on each one.

For the little guys (age 3) I cut the corn out.  Their job was to put the corn in order from 1-5 using number identification and then to glue the correct number of corn kernels on the correct corncob.

For the Pre-K kids (age 4-5) they were in charge of cutting out their own corn (numbers 1-10), gluing them in order and gluing on the correct number of corn kernels on the correct corn cob.

100th Day of School Activities

Happy, happy Tuesday!  While you are here you should follow along via e-mail or Facebook.  Check the bar on the right.   Although these activities are written for the 100th day of school they would be great projects for the summer to practice counting to 10 and then counting by 10s to 100.

Most traditional schools celebrate the 100th day of school in February, but when you only go to school 3 days a week, like we do, it takes a while longer to get to 100.  🙂  We just hit that amazing milestone 2 weeks ago.  It’s always such for to celebrate the 100th day!

With the 3 year old class we made 100th day hats and 100th day trail mix. 

Those 2 activities were more than enough for a 1.5 hour long class.  🙂  Our hats started as a flat 3 inch strip with the title on it and 10 one inch strips coming out of the top.  I had it prepped that far before the kids even got to them.  The kiddos had to add 10 letter stamps to each strip of paper, then we stapled them together making a 100th Day crown.  Cute!

With the Pre-K students we wrote/drew what we would buy if we had $100, created 100 day fruit loop necklaces, made the 100 day hats and the 100th day trail mix too. 

Each time we practiced counting by 10s to 100.  The necklaces had 10 of each color and then repeated colors to get to 100.

Clothespin Games and Printables

 

Welcome to Creative Preschool Resources!  I’m glad you joined me and my preschool adventures.  As long as you are here you should “follow” along by entering your e-mail address under the subscribe button on the right.

Clothes pin activities are a great way to incorporate learning and fine motor muscle building.  When kiddos use their cute little fingers to pinch the clothes pins open they get a great little workout.

I created several sets of clothes pins for my preschool students using both mini and regular sized clothes pins.  I hot glued fun painted wood pieces {found at your local craft store} to the end of each pin and added letters or numbers.

We started the year using them for basic matching.  Lower case letter to lower case letter, number to number and capital to capital.  Then we started mixing them asking the kiddos to match the capital to the lower case and lower case clips to capital letters.   Later in the year to extend the learning I created beginning sound wheels.  The students are now asked to match the correct letter to the beginning sound of each picture.

If you’d like to download the beginning sound wheels please click on the links below.

Download and print out the PDF.  Numbers 1-4 Numbers 5-8, Numbers 9-12

Laminate cards and cut out.  Cut animals in half separating the side with the spots from the side with the number.  Have students work in pairs to match the correct number spots to the correct numeral.

**  BONUS **  I made these simple animals to use as name tags. 

I printed them out, wrote their names on them and laminated them.  Now the kids practice name recognition by finding their name tag, but in addition they are required to trace their name with white board marker on their name tag several times a day.

Name Tag PDF Here

Easter Math Activities

Welcome!  While you are here why not follow along or pin something?

There are TONS of fun things that you can “play/do” with your child around Easter to help them practice essential beginning math skills.

Number plastic eggs 1-12 and have your child place them in an egg carton in order by number.  Have children add the correct quantity of jelly beans into each egg.

Practice number writing using this ADORABLE Easter number writing practice page.

*Please note: All free printables are only for readers of Creative Preschool Resources . If you enjoy this printable, please take a second to “follow” us to receive email updates or follow via Facebook {top sidebar}. Thank you!

If you’d like a PDF of this page click on the link How Many Easter Page

To practice simple addition place random numbers of jelly beans into plastic eggs and snap shut.  Have your child choose 2 eggs from the basket.  I would print out the worksheet and place it in a page protector {use white boards markers}.  Have your child draw and/or write how many jelly beans were found in each egg and then determine HOW MANY ALL TOGETHER.   Here are 2 different options based on child’s ability.

Download the PDF of Easter Egg Addition

For more fun hands-on math ask your child to complete a pattern out of jelly beans OR plastic Easter egg halves {to prevent annoying rolling}.

Have fun with MATH every day!  Happy Easter!

Letter S Snowflake Graph

Snow, snow everywhere!  I just love this time of year.  I know some of you loathe snow, but being a California girl {for 25+ years}, I still find it fun to have Colorado snow in my new wonderful state!  To continue our graphing skills {money graphing, heart graphing}, this week we will be sorting snowflakes by size and then graphing our results.

I love allowing the kids to pick-up, move and manipulate the items they are graphing rather than counting items from a picture on a worksheet.  I always attempt to use REAL things they can touch to make it mean more.  You can get the snowflake graph here.

Valentine Math

I LOVE Valentine’s Day and anything fun to do with hearts.  There are a million ways to do math for Valentine’s Day, but here are a few of my favorites…
