This fun counting game is fairly quick to prep and hardly uses any printer ink!
I printed one set of the snowflake cards (you may want to print more depending on how many kids will be playing) and ran them through the laminator to make them durable enough for easy reuse.
Then I ran off one copy of the recording sheet for each student along with a few extras since kids often want to play the games more than once. Extra practice is always fine by me!
Snowflake Counting Game
This game was a fun addition to our math centers and was instantly a hit. Students were excited to settle in and get ready to count up some snowflakes!
First, we picked up a card and counted the snowflakes on it. Some kids were able to subitize the amount (recognize how many instantly without counting), while others needed to count one-by-one. Either way, we were making great progress.
Once we figured out how many snowflakes were on the card, we searched for the matching number on a mitten. (When it snows, we need our mittens!)
We counted 1, 2, 3 snowflakes, so we searched, found, and colored the mitten with the number 3 written on it.
Then, we picked up our next card, counted the snowflakes, and colored the matching mitten on our recording sheet: a two!
We continued flipping, counting, and coloring until our sheet was complete.
