Snowman Math

My son and I had fun today making a snowman scene while working on mathematics. I saw this idea in the Mailbox Magazine for Teachers. It is a simple, fun activity that any preschooler would love! All you need is a sheet of white paper with the number 1-12 (or 10, whatever you are working on) written along the bottom, flashcards corresponding to the numbers on the bottom of the paper and Bingo Dot Markers (found at the Dollar store).

My son drew a flashcard out of the stack and practiced sounding out the number word as best he could. I obviously had to help him on most of them since they are phonetically ridiculous. haha! After he figured out the correct number, he found it at the bottom of his page and put that many dots above the number to build his snowman. Do this until you are done with every flashcard.

Then simply add some details to your snowmen with markers.
