Today, I am excited to share a fun, spring-themed set of printables and several ways to use them! Learning number quantity (how much a number is) can be a difficult concept for children, but it is very important to learn aside from just the number symbol we are used to writing. You can use these cute umbrella counting cards to help your child learn how much a number is! Look below for all of the fun ways these cards can be used!
Spring Activities: Umbrella counting cards
Why: You can use number cards to practice number order, number quantity, and number symbols!
When learning to count, it is imperative to teach young children number quantity rather than only number order and number symbols. Remember, just because your child knows the order of numbers 1, 2, 3, etc, does not mean that they know how much a number represents. This is number quantity.Number quantity can be taught (or reinforced) alongside a simple printable and manipulative. You can use the manipulative to show your child how much each number symbol represents.
To further challenge your child, this printable set also contains number quantity clip cards and missing number cards.

Aren’t these cards just so cute? Here’s a bit of a side story – these cards are so inspired by Y who has been obsessed with umbrellas for the past year. He is very eager to use his umbrella!
A third way to use these cards is to present the laminated card alongside a dry erase marker! Your child can draw the raindrops him or herself!
