Clams & Pearls- FREE Summer Download

In all honesty, summer is just about over (that is crazy to think about) and I’ve been sitting on this printable for you all summer!  I have got to get this out to y’all so you can use it before we start talking all about apples & pumpkins! I am a big fan of having one activity that can be used to teach multiple objectives. It’s a big perk, if that activity will grow with my child & I can use it at multiple stages of cognitive development. And if it is seasonally exciting, well then I. Am. Sold. This is one of those activities, and I have it for you today FREE!  Let me share with you all of the ways we use this in our home.Clams and Pearls- Life with the HawleysHawley Homeschool
First get the free download, print, and laminate (or put into a page protector). We like to use pearl beads, white beads, mini marshmallows, cotton balls, & small white pom poms.DSC_0067DSC_0109
Roll. Use foam dice to roll a number in the top 2 boxes. If your child is not counting above 6 yet, you can use a single dice.

Add. Ask your child to count up the dots, or to add them together for a sum. If you’re past addition, try subtraction. Comparisons also work great here (write greater than or less than on the sheet, or “write the number of the dice with more dots”).

Write. Your child could write the sum as a digit or a word, both numbers presented on each dice, or trace the digit or word. We use dry erase markers since they erase well on the laminated material.

Count. Using manipulatives, get your child to count out the number that was presented on the dice.

Fun. Enjoy!!!!DSC_0108
If you think your child would enjoy learning with this activity go here for the free download!
