An ice cream counting game using numbers 1-20.
To create this resource, simply print and cut out each ice cream scoop, cone, and cherry.
Students are required to count the number of sprinkles on each ice cream scoop and match it to the cone with the corresponding number. Once it is correctly matched, they get to place a cherry on top .
This fun activity would be great to use in math centers or as a warm-up 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.
When counting objects, say the number names in the standard order, pairing each object with one and only one number name and each number name with one and only one object.
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.
Understand that each successive number name refers to a quantity that is one larger.
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.
