Marshmallow Counting Folder Game

Merry Christmas in July!  Just for fun, I thought I'd share a few Christmas/winter themed school activities with you.  The first one is a "Marshmallow Counting" game, which has a few componients to it.  The folder game itself contains pages of cocoa cups with numbers on them for 1-to-1 counting.  The student can count with mini marshmallows, pom poms, or beads to match the item numbers with the number printed on each cup.  Each page could also be used for a "more or less" comparison exercise.

The file also works as a busy bag game.  You could cut the cups out and laminate them, then instruct the child to put them in numerical order or to separate the even numbered cups from the odd ones.  The file also contains a ten-frame set of cards and a written (number) words set to be matched with the cups.  You can add a self-correcting aspect to the cards by color coordinating them to each other (ex- all the 3s have a green dot on the back, etc).
