Snowball Catch added 1-6-00 Original Author Unknown

Cardboard egg carton
Marker
Cotton balls

Write numbers in the bottom of each section of the egg carton. Have each child put one snowball (cotton ball ) in the egg carton. Close the cover and shake it. Then open it up and see which number it landed in. Then have them count out that many snowballs.


Mittens added 8-24-00 Original Author Unknown

Wintertime is the season to give children hands-on math practice-with mittens.
Need: Construction paper in various colors, Scissors, Markers or crayons
Before you begin:
Cut out pairs of paper mittens from construction paper. There should be several pairs of matching mittens (same size and color), as well as a variety of mitten pairs in different sizes and colors. Now you're ready for the following math activities:

Perfect Pairs
Mix up the variety of mitten pairs. Have children sort the mittens by size and color to find matching pairs. Ask children what makes a pair. What other objects come in pairs (socks, earrings, boots, etc.)?

Numeral Match-Ups
Gather several identical pairs of mittens (same color and size). For each pair, make symbols on one mitten (such as dots or stars) and write the number of symbols on its mate. Mix up the mittens and have children match them up by the number of symbols and the corresponding numeral.

Mitten Measurements
Using the same-sized mittens, let students take turns lying on the floor and measuring how many mittens tall they are. Chart the results for all to see.


Snow Ball Counting added 2-02-02 Original Author Unknown

Use large index cards to make a set of five counting cards. Draw one dot on the first card, two dots on the second card, and so on.  Lay the cards on a table and set out 15 cotton ball "snowballs".  Let your children count the snowballs as they place them on the dots on the cards.
