Counting to 20 Pumpkin Kindergarten Math for Google Slides and Seesaw

When it comes to counting 1-20 it really comes down to repetition! But that does NOT mean boring! Math for Kindergarten is about spicing up numbers and counting until kids can fluently count and name numbers, quantities and more. What better way to do that than with ever-changing, engaging math centers and games. This Counting to 20 Pumpkin Kindergarten Math for Google Slides and Seesaw fits beautifully with your fall and pumpkin themes, and it gives you a little break because there is no prep!

Kindergarten students practice counting to 20 in this pumpkin math activity for Seesaw and Google Slides.

Learning About Beginning Kindergarten Math:

COUNTING AND NUMBER RECOGNITION IN KINDERGARTEN

LEARNING TO COUNT FLUENTLY SETS A SUPER STRONG FOUNDATION FOR FUTURE MATH CONCEPTS, LIKE ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION.

Counting to 20 pretty much covers everything students need to know about counting to a million! Once children recognize and understand the base ten patterns found within numbers 1 to 20, they can apply those place value patterns and concepts to bigger and bigger numbers!

I love counting games and activities. Math worksheets are a great way to record progress, but the real meat of learning to count and recognize numbers should be through games and fun activities.

The kindergarten Google Slides/Seesaw for kids activity provides so many opportunities to practice the numbers 1 to 20!

Students will also be able to work on fine motor development as they click drag, or use their fingers on a phone or tablet.

In addition to learning number recognition and counting, use the fun pumpkin slides to get students thinking:

  • Name the number aloud for each slide, then count aloud as you drag them to the pumpkin patch.
  • Can you count backwards from the number on the slide?
  • Is the number odd or even? How do you know?
  • Trace each numeral with your finger to practice number formation.
In this beginning kindergarten math activity, students count 1-20 by placing the correct number of pumpkins in the patch.

Sight Word Sentences

Children can practice reading the sentence at the top of each slide by pointing to each word, “I can count to…”

Differentiate

Some students will be ready to tackle numbers 1 to 20, while others will be overwhelmed. Adjust the numbers you give to students so they feel successful, not frustrated.

Make it a Game

Students can take turns completing the slides with a partner. When it isn’t their turn to count and drag the pumpkins to the patch, they should be the “teacher” and count in their head.
