This worksheet is a counting activity that features arrays of different symbols such as circles, stars, hearts, and others. Each array is organized in a way that facilitates counting by groups, with the symbols arranged in rows and columns. The task for students is to count the total number of symbols in each array and write down the quantity. At the bottom of the worksheet, there is a section where students can self-evaluate their performance by circling one of three emoticons, from happy to sad.
The worksheet is designed to teach students how to count objects in an array format, which is a precursor to understanding multiplication and area. It encourages the development of visual grouping skills, allowing students to count larger numbers of objects more efficiently. By writing down the total count, students practice number representation and reinforce their understanding of the relationship between quantities and numerals. The self-assessment feature helps students to reflect on their counting skills and promotes self-awareness of their learning process.
