One-to-one correspondence is an important skill in early childhood. I love the book Mouse Count by Ellen Stoll, so I decided to create an activity to follow-up with after the story. In this document I have a Smart Board activity where students move the mice into the jar to match the number given. Using one-to-one correspondence they can correctly track and count the mice they are moving. 7 pages with the option to add more.
The second activity is a coloring activity. They color as many mice as they want to add to their jar. I have 12 on the page. Then they cut them out and glue them into the jar. In the corner they record the number of mice they placed in the jar. This can then be turned into a class book, a guessing game where you cover the number and have students figure out how many mice are in the jar or just a fun sheet.
Common Core Standard
When counting objects, say the number names in the standard order, pairing each object with one and only one number name and each number name with one and only one object.
