1-2-3 Come Do Some Sweet Jellybean Things With Me
I LOVE jellybeans. Like Fishy Crackers and Candy Hearts they are a “must have” manipulative in my classroom, as I’m a firm believer that “hands-on” learning is the best way for little ones to learn. If you can involve something edible now and then, you'll certainly grab their attention.
Because of that, I just finished designing some interesting activities that will hopefully help turn the light bulb on for your students and reinforce report card standards in a fun way!
The Jellybean Counting Booklet is an easy reader that reviews number words and counting to 10. Students trace and then write the numbers and number words, circle the number in its sequence and then circle that many jellybeans in the group/set.
I’ve also included a “count to 30” “trace & write” skill sheet and a certificate of praise bookmark.
When everyone is done, read the booklet as a whole group to reinforce concepts of print.
Students trace and then write the color word and then color the jellybean the appropriate color.
This booklet includes 2 graphing extensions and 10 traceable color word flashcards with jellybean cards to color + a cover so students can turn the cards into an Itty Bitty booklet.
