Materials:

  • The Very Lonely Firefly by Eric Carle
  • laminated firefly illustrations (see Set Up)
  • dry erase markers, one for each student

Goals:

Students will "match quantities up to at least 10 with numerals and words." --Massachusetts Mathematics Curriculum Framework

Resource Instructions

Determine the number you want to concentrate on. Use a dry erase marker to circle groups of the number. For example, if you're concentrating on the number 3, circle groups of 3 fireflies. Use a paper towel to erase the circles and try to create a few new combinations. Have students try on their own.

Extensions:

Shrink the copy so that you have a paper with even more fireflies. This will allow you to extend the activity, or concentrate on larger numbers. Make copies on paper. Students can use these and bring them home.
