This FREE apple themed mental math activity offers your little learners an engaging way to practice subitizing with numerals to 20. These number sense puzzles complement autumn/fall, school, farm, harvest, or Johnny Appleseed themes. There are 20 individual 2 piece puzzles, one for each numeral from 1 to 20. The completed puzzles are approximately 5.75 inches X 3 inches.
The left puzzle pieces have numerals. The right pieces have counting fingers representations of quantities. Learners match the numeral to the correct quantity.
This developmentally appropriate activity is great for differentiation. Just pull the puzzles that best address any learner’s particular needs. There is no stigma for the students about “being behind”, because all the puzzles have the same format.
This versatile resource can be used in a variety of ways. The puzzles are great for morning tubs, math centers, fast finisher activities, and take home packets. They can be used as individual, group, or partner activities.
Print, laminate, and cut out the puzzle pieces. You may prefer to print the pieces on cardstock for durability. Store the pieces in your choice of zip top storage bags, envelopes, plastic pencil boxes, or zippered supply pouches. You can put adhesive magnet circles on the back of the pieces and use a dollar store cookie sheet to make a magnetic learning activity. The puzzle pieces may also be used in a sensory bin.
This activity helps learners develop numeracy and supports the Math Common Core Standards for Counting and Cardinality.
