This Counting Ice Cream digital resource is a fun and yummy way to practice counting one-to-one.  Young learners can practice one-to-one counting with numbers 1-20.  Your students will have fun "scooping" ice cream on the cone.  It's the perfect treat to work on counting skills with your students or your own little ones at home.

For this digital resource, you are going to want to make a copy, when prompted (the link to make a copy is found in the FREE download below).  When you make a copy, it will save to your Google Drive.  

After making a copy, you will want to make sure you are not viewing in present mode.  You just want the students to have the slides.  They will not be able to manipulate the ice cream scoops if you are actually trying to view the slideshow.  

There are 21 slides in the slideshow.  One slide has the directions and the rest are the slides for students to work in.  

Students look at the number on the ice cream counter.  In the example below, the student sees the number 5 on the ice cream counter.

The student "scoops" (drags) 5 ice cream scoops onto the cone.  Students can count, "1, 2, 3, 4, 5" as they are counting each scoop.  


In the example below, the student sees the number 16 on the ice cream counter.  

The student can count 10 on the first ice cream cone and 6 on the second ice cream cone.  This is also a great way for students to recognize the concept of "ten and some more." 

Students work through all of the slides in the slideshow to practice with one-to-one counting using ice cream scoops.

In Pre-K, we work on identifying and naming 2D and 3D shapes.  Most recently, we have been reviewing 3D shapes.  This 3D Shape Monster digital resources is a fun way for students to practice with 3D shapes.  They will create a 3D shape monster using spheres, cylinders, cubes, and cones.  To practice number skills, students then record how many of each shape they used.  

For this digital resource, you are going to want to make a copy, when prompted (the link to make a copy is in the FREE download found below).  When you make a copy, it will save to your Google Drive.  

After making a copy for your drive you will want to make sure you are not viewing in present mode.  You just want students to have the slides.  They will not be able to manipulate the shapes if you are actually trying to view the slideshow.

There are three slides in the slideshow: a direction/example slide, a slide for creating the 3D shape monster, and a recording page for recording the number of each 3D shape used.  

Students will create their 3D shape monster on this slide.

They will type how many of each shape they used on this slide: 

Students just delete the "Type number here" text and type the number they used to match how many of each 3D shape was used.  

Here are some examples of 3D shape monsters that were created.





I LOVE the creativity and it is such a fun way to practice with 3D shapes!

Many of us are currently finding ways to teach online during distance learning.  This Flower Garden Letter Match is a fun way for your students to practice matching uppercase and lowercase letters.  This resource is a digital resource that your students can use in Google Slides.  They will "pick" the lowercase flower with the letter that matches the uppercase letter.  It's perfect for spring!
 

For this digital resource, you are going to want to make a copy, when prompted (the link to make a copy is in the FREE download found below).  When you make a copy, it will save to your Google Drive.  

After making a copy for your drive you will want to make sure you are not viewing in present mode.  You just want students to have the slides.  They will not be able to manipulate the letters if you are actually trying to view the slideshow.  

Students will see a screen similar to the one below.  They are to move the lowercase letter that matches the uppercase letter next to it.  In this example, students would see an uppercase letter A.  They see the lowercase letters in the flowers and should pick the lowercase letter a to match the uppercase letter A.
 
If students pick the correct flower, there is a check mark under that choice so they can see they have picked the correct matching letter.
 

 In the example below, students see an uppercase letter H.  They must look for the matching lowercase letter h.  They choose from p, h, or m.
 

Again, when the student moves the right letter there will be a check behind that letter to show they are correct.

We work a lot on rhyming in Pre-K.  We use songs, picture cards, clip cards, and more to help with understanding rhyming.  In the world of online teaching, I came up with a digital Rhyming Pictures resource to use with my students.  I used this in a Zoom meeting with my students.  I shared my screen with them and then I said the picture names and they gave me a thumbs up or down if the pictures rhymed.  It was fun, engaging, and great practice for rhyming.

For this digital resource, you are going to want to make a copy, when prompted (the link to make a copy is in the FREE download found below).  When you make a copy, it will save to your Google Drive.  

After making a copy for your drive you will want to make sure you are not viewing in present mode.  You just want students to have the slides.  They will not be able to manipulate the thumbs up/thumbs down images if the slideshow is actually being presented. 

Students will see a screen similar to the one below.  They say the picture names and then decide if they rhyme.  If they think it rhymes they move the thumbs up.  If they don't think it rhymes they move the thumbs down.  The correct choice has a check mark under it to self-check.  

In this example, students see the two pictures and say, "Cat, Bat."  They decide if they rhyme and move the correct thumb.

Since "cat" and "bat" rhyme, the thumbs up was moved and the check mark under it shows that is the correct answer.  


In this example, students see the two pictures and say, "Ring, Mug."  They decide if they rhyme and move the correct thumb.


Since these two words do not rhyme, the thumbs down is moved and the check mark shows that is the correct answer.  

Included in this Rhyming Pictures slideshow are 20 slides for rhyming.  10 slides have pictures that rhyme and 10 slides have pictures that do not rhyme.  This is great to send to your students as an assignment activity to do or share your screen and do this with your students together.

Decomposing within 5 is one of our pre-k math standards.  There are lots of books that count to five, including Five Green and Speckled Frogs.  This Frog Decomposing math activity is perfect to go along with that text.  Students will put some frogs in the pond and some out of the pond to show ways to break apart five.  It is a great visual for young mathematicians.
 
To prepare this activity, I just copied enough of the frog pond mat and recording page for my students.  I also made sure that each student had a set of 5 frogs.  Students also need crayons, scissors, and glue to complete the activity.  Then they were ready for some Frog Decomposing.  
 
Starting the lesson with this book is a great way to begin.  I love using literature during my math lessons.
 
Students start by cutting apart their 5 frogs.  
 
Then students decided how many frogs to put in the pond.  In the example below there are 3 frogs in the pond.  
 
Students then decided how many frogs to put out of the pond.  In the example below there are 2 frogs not in the pond.  
 
Students have a recording page to complete to tell how many frogs are in the pond and how many are not in the pond.  They can color their page when they finish!
 
Also included in the download (found below), is a color version of the frog pond mat and five frogs that you can use to model decomposing for students.
