Do you have any cookie fans in your classroom? I bet you do! This free Cookie Sheet Ten Frame Matching Game is great to have on hand in your Pre-K or Kindergarten classroom for a fun, hands-on math center. Your kids will have so much fun “baking cookies” while learning to match ten frames to numerals!

*Pair with our Counting Centers and Activities for Pre-K & Kindergarten!

This activity is fairly quick to prep, and the best thing about it is that I can stick it in a Ziploc bag and use it again from year to year!

I printed out the ten frame cookie sheets and the number cookies on cardstock and laminated them for durability. Then I cut them apart on the solid black lines. You can cut the cookies out on the solid square lines or cut them into a circle for a more “cookie” feel.

How to Play

This ten frame matching game is perfect to play year-round. I like to add it to our math centers after reading If You Give a Mouse a Cookie (a fan favorite!).

There are several ways to play. You could just have kids pick up the cookies and cookie sheets and pair them as they go along, you could play it like a memory game and put them face down until you find the matches, or you could play a more guided version in a small group.

Since I usually play with small groups when I introduce a new activity, we first laid out all of the cookie sheets in order from 0-10 (yes, this includes that tricky number 0 that sometimes gets left out!).

Then, we took turns picking up a ten frame and identifying how many dots were in it.

Some kids counted one by one, while others who are a bit stronger at subitizing were able to recognize the amount instantly without counting.

When we knew the total, we matched up the cookie sheet with its cookie. We kept going until all of the cookies had found their match!
