A set of 4 animal templates for students to practice subitizing numbers and using one-to-one correspondence.
Use this resource when students are learning to subitize a small quantity and use one-to-one correspondence.
How to use this resource:
- Print the animals on bright colored cardstock.
- Students choose an animal and roll a die.
- Students place a matching number of pompoms or counters on to the circles. To work on fine motor development, have your students use tweezers to pick up the pompom and place it on their mat.
- They are finished when all of the circles have been covered.
Encourage students to recognize the number of dots on the die rather than count them.
This activity is great to use in a math center.
Common Core Curriculum alignment
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.
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.
