This is a kindergarten math unit complied of 5 math centers to use with bear counters in your classroom. There is minimal prep. needed because you can use the bear counters as the manipulatives for the centers. This counting bear pack is aligned to the Common Core Standards.
-Sorting by Color: the students will look at the bear mat, and sort the bears according to color
-Counting: the students look at the number on the mat and place that many bear manipulatives down
-Clip the Number: the students count the bears on the mat, and clip the correct number
-Adding on: the students look at the number on the sheet, and place more bears down to equal the number
-Write the number: the students look at the mat, and write the number
Each math center comes with a recording sheet that can be completed with the center, used as independent or guided practice, or for homework.
I am excited to use this in my class for the beginning of the year as I introduce colors, numbers, counting, and adding on!
