Strawberry Number SenseThis activity is perfect for your spring, summer, and strawberry-themed homeschool preschool activities. All you will need to do to get started is print the pages and cut out all of the pieces. Then, your preschoolers are ready for some strawberry-themed math fun.
I suggest printing the pages on cardstock and laminating for durability. This will help extend the life of your printables so you can use them over and over again. In this activity, students will go strawberry picking to find all of the matching numbers and number words. This activity is a great way to have students practice number sense.
To complete this activity, children will spread out all of the images that have number words on them. There are ten. From there, little ones will go strawberry picking! Choose a strawberry, identify the number represented, and put it with the correct number word image.
Each of the fifty strawberries features a different number representation. They include numerals, ten frames, counting fingers, tally marks, and more. Students will choose a strawberry and count the dots/fingers/tally marks or identify the numeral.
To make this activity self-checking, you can put a small sticker on the back of each cut out. Make sure you have ten different sticker styles - one for each number one through ten. When all of the strawberries have been matched, kids can turn them over to see if the stickers match. If so, they've matched them correctly.
