Math with Leaves and Pine Cones

Fall is a great time to go for nature walks

and collect leaves and pine cones for classroom use.

Read:  “Fletcher and the Falling Leaves” by Julia Rawlinson. Fletcher experiences the falling leaves for the first time, and wonders what will happen next.

Rhyme: Too Many to Count


Materials needed: Collect several large leaves, acorns or pine cones, construction paper, markers, sentence strips.

Directions: Cut out several large leaves, or buy some, write one number per sentence strip. Set out a large leaf on each sentence strip, put acorns/pine-cones in a basket or bowl. 

Instructions: Have children count out acorns or pine-cones and place them out on to the leaf. Count 1 and 2 and 3.
