Pumpkin Seeds {Free Printable}

We are all things pumpkin over here these days, and probably will be through the end of November.  We have been using this activity already (gasp!) to work on math concepts and handwriting, while also chatting all about the seasons and pumpkins.  I'm sharing it with you today, FREE, along with some ideas for how to use this in your home or classroom.
Roll Write Count Pumpkin Seeds- Life with the HawleysHawley Homeschool
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.DSC_0121
First get the FREE download, print, & laminate (or put into a page protector). We like to use pumpkin seeds, white beads, buttons, and small pom poms.

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_0117DSC_0119
