Do your children need practice with counting and matching numbers through five? These brightly colored Counting Fish Cards were created for young children to explore quantities of the numbers 0 – 5. Your children will begin to subitize while working and you can check for cardinality as they work. The ability to Subitize is the beginning of building a strong foundation for future learning in mathematics!
recognizing the quantity of small groups of objects without counting them
asking how many dots are on the card and they can answer you without recounting
Begin by using only the dot cards (2 each for each number). After the children can match cards with the same quantity of dots, you can add the numeral cards for additional sorting. This great sorting and matching activity can also be used for differentiation!
The “Counting Fish 0-5!” Resource Packet includes:
• Fish Counting Cards 0-5 (6 colors or black & white)
• Fish Counting Cards have Dot Sets or a Numeral so that All Colors have 3 Matching Cards (a total of 18 matching cards, extra blank card just in case, bringing the total fish count to 24!)
• Sample Questions for Number Talks
• Instructions for Preparing and Using the Cards
