Students can work on their number sense with this activity. The goal would be to have students just know the number when they see it based on the pattern (dominoes, 10 frames, finger patterns, rerenrek). They then will match the gumdrop to the correct number (work on number identification). This activity can be used in a variety of ways such as: Copy and print the different Gingerbread Men and the gumdrops.
Set out a few at a math center and have students match the gumdrops to the correct Gingerbread Man.
Do above and add the recording sheet (at the end of the document). After sorting have students draw a picture of items that is the same as that number.
Have students cut, sort, glue the different pictures. Recording sheet is located at the end of this document.
