The following activities are included:

• Counting/Number Sense/Subitizing (numbers 1-20)

• Counting/Number Sense/Tally Marks (numbers 1-20)

• Greater Than, Less Than

• Number Sequencing/Counting On

• Matching Uppercase & Lowercase Letters

• Beginning Sounds

You receive:

• Full color turkey cards for numbers 1-20

• Full color turkey letter cards

Can also be used as a stand alone center. Simply place the cards face down and have students pick turkey cards.
