Use this matching game in your early years classroom to teach students to count quantities and match them to numbers (1-20).

## Early Years Counting – Make a Match!

This garden-themed matching card game requires students to count the number of flowers on the card, and match it up with the card displaying the equivalent numerical representation. The activity explores numbers (and quantities) from 1-20.

This 7-page resource download includes 36 game cards and an instruction sheet.

To prepare this game for your maths rotations, a whole-class game or for student pairs, print and cut apart the cards. Shuffle them to mix them up, and place them down on the table facing up.

## Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding

A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your math lessons.

In addition to individual student work time, use this maths worksheet to enhance learning through guided groups, math centers, whole class lessons, or homework assignments.

If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners, check out these suggestions for keeping students on track with the concepts:

### 🆘 Support Struggling Students

Help students who need help understanding the concepts by providing physical manipulatives for students to count, and help them visualise the quantity increasing per number counted. Alternatively, use a number line or hundreds board to show the quantities and intervals of one.

➕ Challenge Fast Finishers

Scale the intervals! Students working above level will enjoy the challenge of having each flower represent a different value (for example, 2 instead of 1), and practice their skip counting!
