Kids will have fun practicing counting with this fun, hands on math activity for October. Pumpkin Pie Number Sense is a free printable for preschoolers.
What is Number Sense
Number sense refers the a child’s understanding of what a number means. It means they can see different ways numbers are made (tally marks, dots, counting, equations) and understand how they fit in the world around them and make comparisons.
Number Sense Activities
Start out by printing out the 10 pies in color on cardstock and/or laminate them for durability. There is a pumpkin pie for number 1-10.
Number Sense Games
Now cut the pies out. Then cut each pumpkin pie into four slices by cutting along the solid orange lines.
This is such a fun fall themed number sense activity for preschool, prek and kindergarten age kids for a Thanksgiving theme.
Students will pick a number slice and then find other slices that represent the same number. For example, there are 5 tally marks on the slice above which means the same as a number 5.
HINT: This activity is easier if you only give your students two pies to put together at a time. Make it more difficult by giving them up to 10 pumpkin pies to complete at one time.
