Ask students and parents to donate recycled magazines for this lesson.
Use recycled magazines to search for pictures that go with a number, such as a picture of five yellow ducklings. Adults use Crayola® Scissors to cut out the pictures.
Provide students with a set of 5" x 8" index cards (approximately 10 cards each). Give each student a set of pictures. Ask students to glue one picture to the front of each card using a Crayola® Glue Stick. On the opposite side of the card, instruct students to write the digit that represents the number of animals in the picture on the front of the card. Students can use Crayola® Crayons to write the digits.
Introduce the class to a counting song such as "Five Little Monkeys" or another familiar song. Have students practice the song several times. Investigate the Internet to see if there are any videos illustrating the song.
Tell the class that you will be singing the class again. This time ask students to hold up the index card that represents the number of monkeys they are singing about. Encourage students to hold their cards high!
Adapt this activity for each new song students learn. When developmentally ready, students can add the written word that represents each digit. For example, 10 = ten.
