# Counting Bear Counting Cards

Counting bears are pretty much a staple in early childhood classrooms (we certainly love ours) and we are always looking for fun, hands-on ways to use these manipulatives in our learning. My kids love our counting bear addition cards, so I created a set to come before the addition cards – a set of counting cards that are perfect for preschool and kindergarten students learning to count sets and write their numbers to 12!

## Counting Bear Counting Cards

These cards are super easy to prep (perfect for busy teachers!)

I just printed out the cards (at the end of this post) and laminated them so that they could be used with dry erase markers.

Then I cut them apart and added them, along with a tub of counting bears, to a math bin for use during math workshop time!

Like our addition set, kids will use dry erase markers to write the total number of bears.

They count up the bears and then write the total in the box, but to work more on one-to-one correspondence with my early learners, I have them place a bear on top of each bear on the card as they count.

This is very helpful for students who struggle with counting one object at a time, and it makes the cards a little more hands-on.

After they write the total, they can move the card aside, or erase it (we use clean kids’ socks for erasers!) and move on to another card!
