Spider Counting

  • I made this activity around Halloween but my students can’t get enough! I keep them out all year and they get plenty of use :).
  • We use EnVision math curriculum at our school, which requires the kids to practice writing the numbers that come before and after quite a bit. This activity is very helpful for that.
  • There are 2 versions…one for approaching-level students and one for on-level and beyond-level students.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.CC.A.2: Count forward beginning from any given number within the known sequence (instead of having to begin at 1).

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.CC.B.4.BUnderstand that the last number name said tells the number of objects counted. The number of objects is the same regardless of their arrangement or the order in which they were counted.
