Counting Chocolate Chips – Duckling Get a Cookie

My girls had a hard time to pick what book they wanted to do. We have all three books but they liked The Duckling Gets a Cookie!? (Pigeon) the best. We read this book over and over. I love how it turns out. The books with Pigeon in them are always fun to read!

We did some simple fine motor activity and did some counting of the chocolate chips on our cookies. This was fun and easy and a fun way to extend the story after we read it.

What you need: 10 brown circles with numbers 1 to 10 on them, 4 small stripes to cut, scissors, and glue stick.

The first thing we did was look at the plan cookies and their numbers. She put them in order from 1 to 10. We started with 10 and worked backwards. It was a challenge but lots of fun.

Next she started the fun of cutting up the black paper to be our chocolate chips and pasted them on the cookies to match the number on the cookie. This was fun fine motor and counting skills. We mixed up the numbers and she did them in order of how they came off the pile. After she finished them we counted the chips on each cookie to make sure she had the right amount.

Then we worked on some math similar to how we did our counting apples. We took a big number and looks to see the smaller numbers to add up to the bigger number.
