Counting Hearts

About a week ago, I bought these necklaces at Michael's and was trying to figure out how to use them for counting.  

I decided to cut them into strands and have the children count them.  They had to grab a strand of hearts, then place them in the  column with the same amount.

The students loved touching the pretty hearts and counting them.:)
We are practicing numbers 11-20 so this was a great center activity for them to reinforce those numbers.

After they placed the heart strands in the columns, they took their paper to a different station where they sponge painted the same number of rectangles in each column. I first tried cutting hearts out of the sponges, but the size wasn't working well for the worksheet I made, so we just used little rectangles instead. :)
