Missing Mittens (MathStart 1) by Stuart J. Murphy
The book reviews even and odd and while I didn't find it to be the most interesting story we have read it was great to utilize as a counting opportunity and we spent time counting all the mittens for each page.
Activity : Mitten Math Match-Up Game
Here are the Mitten Number & Dot Printables from KinderPrintables.com . I laminated them and cut them into 2 sets of cards.
How to play the game:
We displayed all the mittens with numbers on the floor and we made a pile of the mittens with the dots. The Lil Divas took turns picking a card from the dots pile. Once they had a mitten thay counted up the dots (1-12) and then matched it to the correct Numbered Mitten!
They loved the game & played over and over! Great way to practice counting & review number recognition.
Here's a Lil Diva counting up the dots on her chosen card:

Hope you have as much fun playing Mitten Match-Up w/your lil ones as we did!
