Math with Hearts and Dots

Small Group Time - In my classroom, small group time is known as star teacher time. Sometimes I work with students one on one, and other times I work with them in groups of 2-4. When I finish working with a group I let them choose a star sticker. The sticker works as great motivation for effort.

Goals: Number Recognition, Counting, One-to-One Correspondence

  • 10 Hearts numbered 1-9, and a star
  • Dots
  • Bell
The child reads the number on the heart. Then they place that many dots on the heart. When the child is finished he/she hits the star. If they are correct the teacher rings the bell. If they are not correct. The teacher and child work together to get the right amount.
