It’s about to get windy! Help the caterpillar catch the falling leaves. Then, practice your counting skills to win!
This online counting game provides a fun way for students to practice their math skills. To play, click on the wind clouds to help the caterpillar swing and catch the leaves. Each leaf caught is placed in the 5-frame at the bottom of the screen. Then, choose the number that matches the number of leaves in the 5-frame. If you answer correctly, you’ll move on to the next level. If you answer incorrectly, you will repeat the level.
While playing this online counting game, students learn a lot! They practice the concept of zero. Plus, students practice counting up to five and learn to recognize numerals. The 5-frame also helps students prepare for addition and subtraction as they see how many squares have leaves and how many are empty.
How can you use the game?
- Ask students to fill in a printable 5-frame for each level, writing an X in each box that has a leaf.
- Ask students to write a simple addition equation for each level of the game completed.
- Ask students to copy the correct numeral in their math journal after each level.
