Peanut Butter and Jelly Activity
Peanut Butter and Jelly Lesson Plan Kindergarten
Kids need lots of practice counting to gain fluency! This activity helps kids practice counting to 10 (or 12 if you like) and visual discrimination (meaning kids know what the number they just counted looks like. This is a fun, back to school themed math activity for preschoolers, toddlers, and kindergartners.
Start out by printing the pages in color on cardstock or laminating for durability. Then cut out the math activities for preschoolers in boxes or along the bread lines, whatever you prefer. This is such a low prep preschool math activity!
Peanut Activities for Preschoolers
Kids can complete this fun counting activity two different ways. First, they can do this counting games on their own by simply matching the correct jelly and peanut butter parts to make sandwiches. They do this by counting peanuts and finding the jelly part that shows the number they just counted. Match all the parts.
Preschool Counting Activities
Another option is to play a number memory game. This can be done on individually or with a friend. Preschoolers will put all the bread pieces upside down. On their turn they will turn over two pieces of bread. If they match (meaning they have a jelly number and peanut butter side with the corresponding number of peanuts) they get to keep the sandwich they made. If playing with a friend, if students make a match they get to go again. Continue playing until all the bread has been made into yummy peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
This activity not only allows kids to work on counting and visual discrimination, but allows them to improve their memory too!
Interactive Number Line
These peanut butter and jelly counting cards can also be used to make a hands on number line. Have kids line up the peanut butter pieces in order from the slice that has the fewest peanuts to the one that has the most. The peanut butter side offers kids a good visual.
Now challenge students by having them put the jelly side in order from 1-10 or 1-12.
You can pull out certain numbers and ask them which number is missing too.
