### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

"Make a Picture with Bottle Caps" and "Counting with Caps" are two fun, interactive and hands-on activities for our first time learner learn more about number recognition from 1-21. These are great activities for math centers and/or to reinforce number recognition.

Before you are able to have your students play this game, make sure you collect A LOT of bottle caps!! Each "worksheet" will need between 10-21 bottle caps.

-Label each bottle cap with numbers 1-21. Each work page will need its own set of bottle caps.

ACTIVITY #1: "Make a Picture with Bottle Caps" uses bottle caps to make pictures while identifying numbers 1-21.

PICTURES INCLUDED:
-popsicle
-magnifying glass
-heart
-tree

Students will simply pull a bottle cap out one at a time out of a bag/bin, say the number, and match the number on the picture.

When placing the bottle cap on the corresponding number in the picture, have the side with the number face up on the bottle cap.

The activity is completed once the picture is covered with bottle caps. Teacher should check student work to make sure they matched all numbers correctly.

-In the corner of each page it will tell you how many bottle caps you will need (Ex: 16---means you will need bottle caps with numbers 1-16 on them)

-CLEAN UP (extra practice): Have students say each number on the bottle cap as they clean up their activity. Placing the bottle caps back into the bin/bag one at a time.

ACTIVITY #2: "Counting with Caps" -Matching numbers within an alphabetic letter.

Each "bubble letter" is made up of circles. Students will simply grab a bottle cap (that is labeled with a number between 1-21) from a bag/bin, read the number and then write the number on a circle that is in the "bubble letter" that they are working on.

Once all of the circles are filled up with numbers and they have the bottle cap sitting on each circle (facing up) students have completed the activity.

Teachers should check student work to make sure they understand matching of numbers.

-CLEAN UP (extra practice): Have students say each number on the bottle cap as they clean up their activity. Placing the bottle caps back into the bin/bag one at a time.
