December Counting Ideas for Kindergarten

I have been trying to thing of some engaging counting activities to do with my students.  My kids are having a difficult time learning the numbers and counting objects, so I needed some inspiration to get them to remember the numbers.

I found some Santa erasers at Target in the Dollar Spot and it gave me a fun idea!

 I made Monthly Number Cards for the students to practice putting the numbers in order, saying the number name, writing the number they see, and counting objects to match the number!  

Each month there is a different themed set of cards!

The December set of numbers is a freebie just for you!  I got the cute Santa erasers at Target in the Dollar Spot!  I asked the students to line the numbers up and place the same amount of Santa erasers next to each number!

We practiced putting the numbers in order in a pocket chart!  I first did this whole group and then had them practice with partners during center time.

  1. Thank you SO much! I bought the erasers a week ago but hadn't decided what to do with them yet. Thank you!

  2. The demographics and background of the children attending this Phoenix kindergarten is a good mix (something i was very particular about seeing as how my son is of mixed race).

  3. Its very interesting and having fun also.Nursery Rhymes have been carefully selected to provide maximum entertainment and education to children.
