These Cootie Catchers use a combination of written numbers, tally marks, ten frames, groups of dots and shapes, and fingers.

Number recognition: For our youngest learners there are 2 Cootie Catchers just for number recognition. One for numbers 1-5 and the other for numbers 6-10. Children simply need to say the number they see out loud, then the child holding the Cootie Catcher can count out that number while manipulating the Cootie Catcher.

Addition cootie catcher

Addition: For this Cootie Catcher, children need to solve the problem presented to them while they play. The outer flaps are numerals. The next layer of flaps contain tally marks and fingers. The inside flaps contain heart ten frames and dots. If your child is not familiar with tally marks or ten frames you’ll need to teach them about those first.

Subtraction: This Cootie Catcher uses the same types of number formats as the Addition.

Doubling: For this Cootie Catcher children need to double each number they see. The outer flaps are numerals. The middle flaps are tally marks and ten frames and the inside problems are groups of shapes.
