Do your young mathematicians need practice with counting to 12?
Do you want them practice their number words as well? Do you enjoy making connections between literature and math?
This packet contains the Mother Goose Ryhme, "One Two Buckle My Shoe" and several counting activities. Students will create a number chain, a number mobile, and complete a worksheet.
Included is an extension activity on triangular numbers in which students arrange the numbers from 1 to 15 in the shape of a triangle (think pool balls). Students are challenged to find the sum in the triangles.
Count to 100 by ones and by tens.
CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.A.3 Write numbers from 0 to 20. Represent a number of objects with a written numeral 0-20 (with 0 representing a count of no objects).
CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.B.4 Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.B.5 Count to answer “how many?” questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered conﬁguration; given a number from 1–20, count out that many objects.
