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.

Enjoy!

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.

Favorite Milk Graph

What do you think of when you consider cows and farms?  Milk, of course!  We thought of that too.  This week we did a taste test to see which type of milk the children preferred:  plain, strawberry or chocolate.

The results were pretty close to what I expected.  I used white construction paper to make a large graph and a PDF printable glass sheet for their voting cups.

What is your favorite flavor of milk?

We also made homemade ice cream with other delicious products that come from cows!  YUMMERS!

Today I’m going to share our farm number match-up game.  This will help the little ones in your life practice counting to 12 and number recognition to 12.

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.

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.

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!

Fabulous Fractions

Well in the world of preschool, fractions are a foreign concept usually unless it comes to food and real items.  My kids always seem to know when they don’t get their fair share of the pizza, mac and cheese, oreo etc.  Introducing the kids to the concept of half and whole is an appropriate skill.  Use these free printables to help your little ones recognize the difference between half and whole.  They could also be used as super simple puzzles for the students to place the correct halves together to form a whole.  Happy math time!
