Counting Fish 0-5 for Counting and Cardinality!
These task cards were created for children to explore quantities of the numbers 0 – 5, while building a deep understanding of those numbers at the concept level, which is the best place to start! The visual representations of numbers on each fish are perfect for helping students’ with beginning subitizing! (Subitize - recognize the quantity of small groups of objects without counting them), building a strong foundation for future learning in mathematics. After the children recognize and can match cards with the same quantity, you can add the numeral cards for additional sorting. This is a great sorting and matching activity and can also be used for differentiation!
The “Counting Fish 0-5!”
resource packet includes both color and black and white sets of fish, each with a set of dots, a numeral, or left blank (for zero!). Each numeral has three cards that match for a total of 24 fish. Also included are strategies for implementation and sample questions to use with the students to develop a solid base for understanding and learning number and alignment to the CCSS.
