Playdough & Toothpick Math



Simple prep for an easy math minute, the Imagination Tree featured a counting activity with playdough and toothpicks. http://theimaginationtree.com/2012/11/counting-and-maths-skills-with-play.html
 

Instead of wooden number plates, we brought out number stamps for marking playdough.
As O and Baby C rolled balls, I stamped a number they had to mark with corresponding toothpicks.
I created an extra challenge for O by presenting her with numbers in the teens.



Baby C is just learning to recognize numbers, so she needed a little partner work.
That didn't take away from her feeling all-important using toothpicks and being included in our math lesson!
