Flannel Friday: Quack and Count

6 May



I made some simple ducks using Microsoft Word shapes and the kids had fun adding up the ducks in different ways to always equal seven using the book Quack and Count by Keith Baker.  I put them all in a line on our flannel board and I made sure to have a space between the ducks as we were counting them up: 6 ducks + 1 duck = 7 ducks.  Maybe to make it even more math focused I could include a plus “+” sign and an equal “=” sign, but with a family storytime group I had kids of all ages, so what I did worked well with them.

I also spent a few seconds talking about what kind of shapes the ducks were made out of – and the preschoolers in the group were excited to share the different shapes they could find.
