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. :)

  1. I spent a lot of my personal time rewriting all the essays, and it was insulting and logical that I don’t like such a beginning, but I wanted my essay to be the best, so I found writing, I found out about bullying Essay

  2. I like to employ assignment help for my academic work. My pals suggested that I utilize the lor for homework help because it had aided their entry into the university and helped them write a ton of articles. These experts are now assisting me with difficult essays and other tasks. The fact that it is of excellent quality and delivered on time, which is what students value most, and that they charge a reasonable sum for their services cannot help but make people happy!
