If You Give A Moose A Muffin Counting
Today we read If You Give a Moose a Muffin, by Laura Joffe Numeroff and since we made muffins yesterday I decided to do this counting activity with Emily today. I got the printable worksheets from this great website and Emily helped me put it together.
Emily colored half of the muffins. She did a great job staying in the lines, I was so proud of her!
Emily wanted to cut her muffins out so I cut them into strips and she cut down the middle. These strips were wider than she is used to and she did a great job with it. It looks like we can move on to more difficult cutting practice!Finally we get to play the game. Emily had to put the correct number of muffins on the plate. We worked together to do this and I think it will be great practice for counting, number recognition and 1 to 1 correspondence.
When she was finished putting the correct number of muffins on the plate she enjoyed feeding the muffins to the little moose on the corner of the paper.
**We only worked with the numbers 1-5 although the printouts went up to 20. Emily also got tired of it by the time we got to the last one.**
