INSTRUCTIONS: Print, laminate (optional) and cut out the cards. Invite a child to either use a peg (clothespin), or a dot market, or a dry erase marker, a stamp, or finger paint! Do vary it to keep the engagement kindling.

St Patricks Counting Cards Kids Activity


πŸ’‘ With preschoolers, the GOAL is ONE-TO-ONE correspondence ~which is the ability to match a group of objects (here rainbow stickers) to the corresponding number and recognize that a number is merely a symbol to represent that quantity! Young children often learn β€œROTE counting” without having an understanding of 1ONE-TO-ONE correspondence! They learn to count to ten just like a heart-learned poem without truly understanding number placement or quantity! So, have them TOUCH and COUNT ALOUD each rainbow sticker as they match the CARDINAL number to its corresponding numeral.
β €
With kindergarteners, 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 number of rainbows without actually counting! With practice, children will be able to visualize the number arrangements in their minds, thus aiding them in developing addition and subtraction mental math strategies.



SEE St Patrick’s Montessori Kids Activities* for A VIDEO on HOW TO use these cards!


  • To laminate, you can use an iron instead of a laminating machine. (Love these thermal laminating pouches). HOW: set your iron at low temperature, as if you would iron silk. To be safe, place plain paper OVER the laminating sheet and iron over it. (See HERE how I did it making a flower bookmark.)
  • Alternatively, you can use sheet protectors and insert your pages into it, and then use a dry erase marker.Β 
  • For a quicker and more precise straight cutting, I am using a paper trimmer instead of scissors.
  • corner rounderΒ (optional)
  • Buy rainbow dot markers HERE Or buy similar on Amazon HERE.


PRINT on 8.5 x 11″ letter size paper. *Make sure to check off “fit to printable area.”

It allows little people to engage in kinesthetic learning by doing! Hands-on learning is the common name for β€˜Experiential Learning’ – the philosophical term behind the method of immersing oneself in a process in order to learn it. Experiential Learning has been around since 350 BCE, when Aristotle wrote, “for the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them”. Most importantly, hands-on learning is uniquely positioned to support or elevate ANY type of learner! Best of all, research has proven that children who learn using hands-on methods with manipulatives outperform those who are not. What are manipulatives? They are physical tools engaging children visually and physically with objects such as figurines, blocks, loose items, etc. The use of manipulatives is constructive because little people are actively engaged in discovery by TOUCHING, TRANSFERRING & MANIPULATING during the learning process.
