Instructions:

First, cut out the cardboard tiles, measuring about 3 inches wide and 4 inches tall. Then, with a marker, draw a horizontal line and write three numbers in squares. Finally, hot glue the corresponding quantity of one of the tree numbers. Invite a child to choose a tile and count each manipulative aloud while touching it. Confirm the cardinal number and peg it, selecting the matching one from the three numbers written on a tile.

Pipe Cleaner Carrots Craft

To make pipe cleaner carrots,

  1. Twist one end of an orange or yellow pipe cleaner, making a small hook. (We want to hide a poky end.)
  2. Then, place that twisted end on a paint brush (choose something with a point or a conical shape) and hold it down with your left thumb.
  3. While holding one end with the left hand, with the right hand, wrap the other end of a pipe cleaner around the paintbrush seven times.
  4. Remove the pipe cleaner from a paintbrush and hide the other end inside the spiral. 
  5. Coil the starter-end more tightly after you take it off of the paintbrush.
  6. Shape it to look like a carrot.

One To Once Correspondence

With preschoolers, the goal is One to One correspondence ~which is the ability to match an object to the corresponding number and recognize that a number is merely a symbol representing that quantity. Young children often learn โ€œrote countingโ€ without understanding One to ONe correspondence. They learn to count till ten, just like a heart-learned poem! So, have them TOUCH and COUNT ALOUD each object as they match the peg to its corresponding numeral.
โ €
With kindergarten-age children, the goal is subitizing ~ which is the ability to instantly recognize, without counting, the number of objects present in a small group. So have them GUESS the amount of objects without actually counting! With practice, children will be able to visualize the number arrangements in their minds, thus aiding them in developing addition & subtraction mental math strategies.
