These printables can be used for so many things. You can print them out and laminate them to use them with playdough, you can grab some zoo sticks ( affiliate link here )and pom poms, or use them the way we did and add fun manipulatives to count and place on the printables. You can even use candy as counters for a special fall treat.
Gather your materials. You can print the sheets out below. Click on the link and the pdf will appear you can print or download. Grab some counters, I found these leaves and apples at Micheal’s. I also grabbed a fun container for them and a clipboard to keep the printable stable. I will laminate these for my class and use painter’s tape to tape them to our table when I put them out for free choice in class.
I wouldn’t have a child go through all 10 or 20 of these printables, instead print out a few that fit where your child is at with counting. You can always come back here and print out more as their skills continue to grow.
Time to place the counters.
Some children will prefer to count the leaves or apples into a pile first and then place them. That is perfectly fine!
