Kysen had so much fun matching the numbers to the circles with the same amount of dots. This activity is great for working on number recognition and subitizing (instantly recognizing quantities).
Tops (mine are milk jug tops)
Piece of Paper
I used 10 tops. First write numbers on your tops. I did 1-5 (twice). Next get a paper and trace the tops making 10 circles. Then make dots on your circles. Move the dots around! I did 2 circles for each number. For example 2 circles had 1 dot, 2 circles had 2 dots, 2 circles had 3 dots and so on.
We went over the numbers before we started the game.
Then Kysen matched the numbers to the circles with the same amount of dots.
