Simply count, trace, and match! If the cards are laminated, they can use a dry-erase marker to trace the numeral and number word cards. Simply erase when done for others to complete next!
For those not ready to identify and match number words, you can eliminate those cards, and have the kids match numbers to dinosaur sets. This is what I did with my 3 year-old. Her favorite part was tracing the numbers, which is great for her fine-motor as well as number identification.
When done, your kids can complete this counting dinosaur worksheet, also included in the activity set. They will count, write the number, and color the dinosaurs. This is a great way to check for understanding after they complete the matching activity.
The standard set, also included, is not color coded. Instead, ALL cards are bordered in the same color. I prefer using the standard set for those who need the extra challenge, and when assessing the kids one-on-one. The same color border eliminates the chances of them simply color matching :)
Build math, writing, and reading skills with this engaging Counting Dinosaurs game and worksheet. It makes a great math center, number assessment, and an early-finisher task. Put the cards in a zipper pouch, along with a dry-erase marker, add a kid-friendly dinosaur book, and send it home in a bag for kids to complete with their family, then return to school the following day. Parents love this take-home activity!
