Do your kids like eating bananas? When my girls were little they loved bananas as much as monkeys do. It was like they were little monkeys themselves. I prefer to eat them in a warm loaf of banana bread, but that’s just me. Monkeys and bananas are two peas in a pod and make a fun theme for these Monkey and Banana Counting Cards!
Monkey & Banana Counting Cards for Math Centers
How fun are they, with the cute little banana manipulatives? These printable counting cards are fabulous for kids of all stages of development. They can help children who are just learning numbers or those that are practicing counting and the sequence. Even if your children have numbers 1-10 down, it’s excellent to reiterate the sequence and counting practice. The monkey theme makes them a fun game and children may not even know they are learning.
This activity is great as a busy bag or as an independent or one on one activity!
Materials needed for Monkey & Banana Counting Cards:
Paper and/or card stock
To prep: Print and laminate the Monkey & Bananas counting cards (download below).
To use: Have your child cover the pictures of the bananas on the counting cards with the correct number of banana manipulatives. I absolutely adore the Fruit Counter Manipulatives because they offer so many opportunities to learn!
These cards are perfect for new learners who are not ready for independent counting. The kids simply cover each banana picture on the card as they are counting. That way they know when to stop for each number.
These printable Monkey and Banana Counting Cards are fabulous for all different stages of development and ages. The monkey and banana theme make counting practice fun and kids may think they are just having fun.
