I am a big believer in learning through play, and each center I have created encourages students to have fun while learning. I have also included response sheets and worksheets

This pack is full of hands-on games and centers that reinforce simple number concepts (1:1 correspondence, subitizing, rote counting, identification of numbers/number words, composing/decomposing, etc.). Just add simple manipulatives (i.e. dice, dominoes, counters, etc.) and you're ready to go!

This pack is broken up into different sections (see below) to differentiate student needs. This is what's included:


  • Going on a Number Hunt -> search the classroom for numbers

  • Bears in a Cave -> hide bears and identify how many are missing
  • 5 Little Monkeys -> sing this song while taking away 1 at a time
  • Five Busy Beavers -> using 5-frame
  • How Many Are Hiding? -> showing how 5 can be decomposed
  • Showing 5 Using Unifix Cubes -> how many ways can you create using 5?


  • Co-Created Number Line -> using 10-frames, create a class number wall
  • Animal Numbers -> determining animal placement on a 10-frame
  • Show Me The Number! -> Add small manipulatives and count out that many
  • Missing Numbers on the Number Line -> exploring numbers on the number line
