Earlier this week I promised to share activities using the penguin acorns I shared with you. Today I have two sets of kindergarten math worksheets and printables that would be great to use with the penguins.
While I am calling these kindergarten math worksheets, they could easily be used with younger and older children. You can use the activities I suggest or come up with activities of your own.
Kindergarten Math Worksheets
Muffin Tin Numbers
This set of Muffin Tin Numbers can be cut out and placed into a muffin tin. If you don’t have a muffin tin available, you could place the circle on a table or on a cookie sheet.
Your children can place the correct number of counters into each number cup. You can have them work from one to ten in number order or call out a number that the children need to look for.
You can have your children drop a counter in each cup as they count from one to ten. Another way to have them work on number recognition is to have them select a number and find that number’s cup. Then they can place the number of counters in the cup that matches their number.
Number Line and Number Cards
The second set contains a number line and set of number cards. You can use the set on its own or with the muffin tin numbers. We have used them both ways.
On Their Own
Number Line Walking
Your children can count as they walk a penguin acorn or counter down the number line.
One to One Correspondence
Children can place the correct number of counters or penguins on each number card. Once they have the correct number of counters on the card, they can arrange the counters on top of the penguins. This will help them work on one to one correspondence.
With the Muffin Tin Numbers
Using Number Cards with Muffin Tin Numbers
You can stack the number cards in a pile. Then your children can take the top card from the pile and find that number in the muffin tin. They can place the counters into the cup that matches the number on their card.
Children can repeat this process until all the cards have been picked up from the pile.
Using the Number Line with Muffin Tin Numbers
Children can place a counter on the number line and then look for that number in the muffin tin. They can show that they have found that number by placing a counter or the matching number of counters into that muffin cup.
