Scoops and Paperclips
This worksheet features a colorful image of four ice cream cones with varying numbers of scoops on the left side and a ruler on the right side. Below the images, there are four blank boxes followed by a dotted line with numbers 5, 7, 4, 1, and 6 printed underneath. The students are instructed to measure, count, and paste the number corresponding to the amount of ice cream scoops above each box. This visually appealing activity is designed to combine the tasks of counting and number recognition with a basic measurement exercise.
The worksheet’s purpose is to help students practice counting by identifying the number of scoops on each ice cream cone and then associating that count with the correct numeral. It introduces the idea of measuring quantities and reinforces number recognition by having students match the total count to the printed numbers. This task also encourages fine motor skill development through the action of pasting the numbers onto the worksheet. Additionally, the worksheet serves to strengthen the students’ understanding of number order and sequencing by having them align the numbers with the corresponding ice cream cones.
