Kindergarten Counting – Make a Match!

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

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding 

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

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 them to count, and help them visualize the increasing quantity 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!
