I cut out the animal pictures and the numbers and used tape to attach the pictures to one half of the egg and the numbers to the other half of the eggs.
I like this activity because first, it helps Tiffany count higher than 10 which she has some trouble with. Next, it offers one to one correspondence and it makes Tiffany have to identify which number matches the number of animals she counted. Lastly, it helped with sequencing as once the numbers were matched she had to put the numbers in order from 10-19. Alot of times Tiffany will get ahead of herself with counting and rush the numbers especially with double digits. When I saw her rushing the counting during this game I just helped point to the numbers with her.
Once the pictures were matched to the correct number we began putting the numbers in order from 10-19. We didn't start on 20...yet!
I'm glad I have some extra eggs since I have come up with some other fun ideas to use them for! Stay tuned.....!
