This activity is an extension of activities by Amber Depoy and Elaine Olsen: Thanks, ladies! 1. Click on the button. 2. Count the spiders on each web. 3. Use the tool to circle the correct number of spiders. 4. Once you have completed all 6 slides, click on the to save to your journal. Simplify: * Have your child count the spiders without matching the total to the written numerals. * Say the numbers with your child as they count. * Do only slides 3, 5 and 6 (which count to 3, 4 and 5). Extend: * Have your child go to slide #8 and count the pile of spiders, moving each spider (with the tool) into the web as they count it. Then tell how many spiders altogether. * Have your child write the number for the total number of spiders in slide #8 * Have your child add up the spiders in the problems on slide #9. They can write the number in the square with a tool or type it with the tool. Learning Potentials (Core Standards): Count to ten by ones. Count to 20 by ones Begin to name written numerals 0–5. Count a number of objects from 0–10 and begin to associate them with a written numeral. Begin to point to and count up to five objects. Use one-to-one correspondence when counting objects to ten. When counting objects to ten, understand that the last number counted in a set tells how many. Use concrete objects (or pictures) to make sums of 5 using quantities from 0–5 (for example, 0 and 5 make a set of 5, 2 and 3 make a set of 5).
