An activity for children to use when learning to represent numbers 1-10 in picture, word, and standard forms.
Print out the pages with the numbers and words on cardstock and set aside. Then print and cut out the bugs. You might like to store the bugs in a ziplock bag so that they stay together.
Choose a gameboard for your students to use (standard or word form). Students must match up the number of dots on each bug with the corresponding number.
As an extension activity, have students choose a bug and make a collection of objects that is greater than, less than, or equal to the amount on the bug’s back.
This activity would work great in guided math rotations or as a math center activity.
Common Core Curriculum alignment
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).
Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
Understand that the last number name said tells the number of objects counted. The number of objects is the same regardless of their arrangement or the order in which they were counted.
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.
Count to 120, starting at any number less than 120. In this range, read and write numerals and represent a number of objects with a written numeral.
