Counting Snowballs to Make a Recycled Snowman

Today we worked on one-to-one correspondence while we "built" our recycled snowmen! First we counted out 5 "snowballs" and then added 5 more! We then added 3 more then 4 more. Once we had all of our snowballs we counted them all together. We came up with 17 snowballs! We practiced answering quantitative questions throughout the activity ("How many snowballs does the friend to your right have?" "How many all together?").

Students also built their fine motor control while putting their snowballs inside the containers. The activity also allowed for color recognition practice and following directions.  

 So serious....but we know better! :)

Our Winter Bulletin Board. Let it snow!
