Thank you for viewing this St. Patrick’s Day Freebie! This math activity will help to pair quantity with its corresponding numeral. It is hands-on and uses graphics of shamrocks for March and your St. Patrick's Day / Ireland theme.
Directions: Print pages including the page of counters twice. Laminate for durability. Cut out cards 0 - 9 and 45 counters. At a table or small rug, have students lay out the quantity of counters that match the numeral on the card. Students will use all 45 counters to correctly complete the work. If there are counters left over or not enough to complete the activity, the student should check the work for errors.
One thing I admire about the Montessori method is how each activity can be checked by the child. Because this activity takes exactly 45 counters to complete, if the student has too many or is short, he must go back to figure out how to solve that problem. Please note: when printing this out you must print the page with the counters twice. This will give you a total of 50 counters in case of loss. Remove 5 counters before giving the activity to a child!
