These documents below were created to use as counting cards. They can be used with many different manipulative. We used the shell pasta that I dyed in an earlier post. Your manpulitives can go with your theme or you could use little stones, pasta noodles, or little toys. Anything you have around the house. I cut these out, glued them on to colored costrution paper, trimmed them and then laminated them. Ella and her two friends loved taking turns with each card and counting as they places the colored pasta shells into each circle.
