This number matching activity has proved to be a hit with Megan. She is adamant to find Daddy Monkey's family and reunite them.
Each Monkey Family consists of the word, number symbol, tally, subitizing dots, ten frame and objects. The aim is to find the Daddy Monkey's family by matching all the same numbers together.
Megan needed some assistance when it came to the word cards, as we have not focused on them yet, but this gave her a wonderful introduction to the number words.
Each number then has a worksheet for reinforcement, covering the different number forms found in each Number Family.
At a later stage I shall introduce Number Bonds using these families by selecting two cards randomly and then asking Megan to add them or subtract them.
If you are interested in these cards, they are available in my TPT store. Click on the image below for a direct link.
